China's ZTE Launches Foldable Double Screen Smartphone In Spain

MADRID -- Chinese multi-national telecommunications company ZTE launched its new high-end smartphone the AXON M, in Spain at an event held in Madrid late Tuesday, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

ZTE's general manager for Terminals, Samuel Sun said the arrival of the AXON M "breaks the rules" and offers more possibilities to clients, who expect more from their smartphones.

"The new era of smartphones has arrived. The AXON M is the start of an unimaginable movement regarding the capacity for the use of smartphones and ZTE is leading the way.

"The ecosystem for smartphones has evolved over the past 10 years but user experience remains the same because there have been few changes to the design of the hardware,"’ Sun said.

The AXON M has an innovative design with two 5.2 inch screens, which can either be folded out to convert the phone into a tablet sized device, or opened up to be used separately, allowing for multi-tasking with different functions simultaneously on each screen.

Meanwhile, Gonzalo Eguiluz, the commercial director of ZTE Spain said the new smartphone demonstrates '”a different way of using a smartphone."

The AXON M smartphone will be sold in Spain by network service provider Vodafone. ZTE entered the Spanish smartphone market in 2008 and has since expanded its market share and profile.
