ZTE Axon M hands-on

Guys. Remember the Kyocera Echo? It had two screens, and flipped together to form one. You said you vaguely remember it? Okay, well here’s a device that should jog your memory: The Axon M by ZTE.

It was a novel idea which didn’t quite pan out in 2011, when the Kyocera Echo launched, but now, in 2017, where we have rumors and concepts of foldable smartphones increasing by the day, perhaps it’s time for a revisit to this form factor. After all, Android is much improved since then, as are hardware technologies. Much of how the Axon M works is based on built-in …

Deal: Get the ZTE Quartz smartwatch for less than $100 (50% off) at T-Mobile

ZTE’s smartwatch, the Quartz was launched at T-Mobile more than six months ago, as cheap alternatives to Samsung’s Gear S3 and LG’s wearable devices. For less than $200, you could buy the ZTE Quartz, a smartwatch that doesn’t feature NFC (Near Field Communications), light sensor, or at least a heart sensor.

Well, the good news is ZTE Quartz comes with Android Wear 2.0 right out of the box, so you’ll most likely benefit from the latest features introduced by Google. The T-Mobile version of the smartwatch includes DIGITS, which allows users to pair their numbers with …

ZTE Blade Vantage

Design-wise, the Vantage is about as conventional as they come: it’s your standard plastic-and-glass slab with a textured greyish brown rear panel. On the front you’ll find a 5-inch display with a slightly disappointing resolution of 854×480 pixels. Inside you’ll find the 2014 Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset, coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage. And thanks to the low-end processor, the 2,500 mAh battery seems like it will last sufficiently long.

Foldable, dual-screen ZTE Axon M (Multy) leaks out, could be announced on October 16


A few weeks back, we heard about the ZTE Axon Multy, an
upcoming smartphone that reportedly packs two displays in a foldable design.
Now, Android Authority seems to have a photo of said handset (included above), showing it semi-unfolded.

 

It’s said that the two screens of this new ZTE Axon smartphone
are both Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels), and, when the device is fully open, they
form a flat 6.8-inch display area with 1920 x 2160 pixels. To be clear, the two
displays themselves are not foldable, but the device is, thanks to what appears
to be a hinge system. Interestingly, the two screens …

Deal: The powerful ZTE Axon 7 64GB is on sale for just $310 (22% off) at Newegg


The ZTE Axon 7 is a powerful smartphone
even by today’s standards. The last year’s flagship is available in
the US for quite a while, but it was a rather hard to come by
product.

Unfortunately, by the time ZTE was able
to provide enough units for the high-demand, many customers have
decided to go for other flagships in the same price range.

Speaking of price, the Snapdragon
820-powered ZTE Axon 7 is now on sale at Newegg, so those who are
still looking for a decent high-end smartphone that doesn’t go over
the $350 price mark, then you might want to check out this offer.

ZTE Axon Multy with dual-screen design coming soon to AT&T

ZTE and AT&T are planning to launch an interesting smartphone that will feature a foldable dual-screen design, in the vein of the 6-years old Sprint-exclusive Kyocera Echo  (pictured in this article). According to Venture Beat, the upcoming handset is called ZTE Axon Multy, and should be exclusively sold by AT&T come mid-October.

ZTE intros the Blade Z Max: an affordable 6-incher with dual cameras and impressive battery

ZTE has recently gained a lot of popularity for offering some of the best budget handsets on the market right now. And while last year’ Axon 7 flagship did a lot to strengthen that image, ZTE has been consistently putting out a lot of other, lower-profile devices. And this is exactly what we’re witnessing today: the launch of the company’s latest ultra cheap device, known as the ZTE Blade Z Max.

Just like its predecessor, last year’s ZTE Zmax Pro, the Blade Z Max will be offered as a timed exclusive to MetroPCS, and will come at a pretty competitive price …
