ZTE Axon M

  • Vodafone confirmed that the ZTE Axon M will launch in the U.K. sometime soon.
  • The carrier did not announce specific pricing or availability information.
  • Launched in November 2017, the Axon M features two screens.


In a world where tall displays and minimal bezels have become commonplace, the ZTE Axon M stood out with its two displays. The Axon M also stood out for its limited availability, though the phone looks to launch in the U.K. sometime soon.

According to TechRadar, Vodafone U.K. confirmed that it will soon sell ZTE’s dual-screened phone. The carrier did not say how much the Axon M will cost, though AT&T currently sells the phone for $725. As such, the price could be anywhere from 500 pounds to 725 pounds.

As a recap, the Axon M features two 5.2-inch displays with 1,920 x 1,080 resolutions each, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a 3,180mAh battery, and a headphone jack. Because the phone features two displays, the primary 20MP camera doubles as the selfie camera.

Unfortunately, the Axon M runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box. An update to Oreo is presumably in the cards, though ZTE remains quiet on that front.

Editor's Pick

Apart from the outdated software, we also knocked the software for not properly taking advantage of the two displays. We were also not fans of the performance, some quality control issues with the second display, and the subpar camera performance in lower light conditions.

Even with the negatives, the Axon M remains a novel device that more than stands out on the hardware front. We just hope that the phone’s pricing in the U.K. reflects its shortcomings.
