Mobile has completely taken over our worlds, in large part due to the rise of smartphones. And every year, smartphones continue to evolve - bigger screens, dual cameras, wireless charging, and more. While these changes are beneficial, they’re highly incremental. After many years of gradual steps, now is the time for a revolutionary change that challenges the status quo.
Today, ZTE introduced the new ZTE Axon M - a foldable, dual-screen smartphone that transforms your mobile experience. Instead of one screen that reduces your mobile experience or one larger screen that limits portability, ZTE has challenged this compromise. The Axon M has two screens that unfold into a large mobile, tablet-like experience when you need it, and yet you’re able to fold them together when you don’t. As a result, true multitasking on your smartphone has just been brought to a whole new level.
Important note: challenging the status quo does not come easy, both for companies and for consumers. But now that ZTE has taken care of the technological challenge, we shift our attention to you. To help us all warm up to the endless possibilities that a foldable smartphone can bring to our mobile experience, here’s a quick introduction to stretch our imagination:
What could this mean for you? Here are just a few sample scenarios...
The kids fighting over the best view of Curious George at the restaurant?
No problem, mirror mode streams the same content to both screens, allowing your kids to sit quietly on opposite sides
Streaming YouTube and need to enter a reminder in your calendar?
No problem, dual mode enables you to enter a calendar entry without pausing or exiting your video
Playing a game but needing to squint to catch all the action?
No problem, extended mode gives you bigger action and better interactions
Updating a spreadsheet and need to copy/paste from an email?
No problem, dual mode ensures you don’t jump back and forth between apps or squint using split screens (if even supported)
Just needing a great traditional smartphone experience?
No worries, as the ZTE Axon M delivers a seamless experience without sacrificing anything
Aside from the countless number of use cases left to your imagination, ZTE stands by its ongoing commitment for timely software updates and continued support for app developers to optimize for the various modes that the Axon M enables. If you’re a developer, check out our dedicated place for dedicated collaboration. If you’re a regular consumer, you can fully expect greater number of apps that are optimized for the Axon M. This is the just the beginning of even more possibilities that are in store with this new foldable, dual-screen experience.
Lastly, we want to thank the many Z-Community fans who participated in focus groups, beta tests, and launch preparation for this new foldable smartphone category. Doing something different takes ingenuity and boldness, all of which our select group of fans have contributed greatly towards. As we continue to iterate in this new category, we look forward to even more Z-Community fans to help contribute towards future enhancements on both the hardware and software front. Until then, check out the new Axon M and reply with your own sample scenarios that you look forward to testing out!
