But this doesn’t stop ZTE from continuing to create foldable smartphones. Jeff Yee, Vice President of Marketing for ZTE, said in an interview that they plan to come up with more mobile devices with folding hull which is expected to be announced by December 2018.
We’ll eventually get to something that’s truly bendable. There’s a lot of other things that we might be adding over time – Jeff Yee
The ZTE Axon M was the world’s first foldable smartphone but it had rooms for improvements. As according to journalists the phone was not very convenient. The two separate screens were needed to be replaced with one single and the appearance also needed to be improved. According to Jeff Yee, many of the smartphones that were brought by folks received it well because he was able to replace it with the immediate smartphones and tablets.
The ZTE Axon M had specifications including the 5.2-inch display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM along with 3180 mAh battery. ZTE also announced to bring upon 5G smartphone to the US sometime in 2019.
