Vodafone is Bringing ZTE's Dual-Screen Axon M Phone to the UK

By Tom Pritchard on at

Last year ZTE released a very strange phone called the Axon M. It's a folding dual-screen device that seems like a concept device that went too far. Earlier this year was MWC, where ZTE confirmed that the phone would be arriving in Europe sometime this year, and now Vodafone has confirmed that it will be offering the Axon M right here in the UK.

The network didn't offer any details other than the fact the phone was coming, so we have absolutely no idea when it will arrive or how much it's going to cost. Considering the phone costs $725 stateside we're looking at £512 if ZTE does a straight price conversion. Past experience tells me that isn't likely, though, so it could be anywhere from there to £725. Maybe higher, if ZTE and Vodafone aren't feeling particularly generous.

The phone itself has two 5.2-inch Full HD displays that have a big hinge in the middle, meaning you can choose between having a phone with a display on either side or one big display that has a big gap in the middle and makes poor use of all the available screen space.

It also has a 20MP front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a Snapdragon 821 chipset, microSD expansion, USB-C, a 3,180 mAh battery, and a headphone jack. The specs aren't too bad on their own, but our review of the US model proved it wasn't all that great. We'll just have to see how (if at all) different the European model is.
