ZTE's upcoming codename Axon Multy smartphone could launch on October 17 as the Axon M, with dual 1080p displays that fold out into a huge 6.8-inch 1920 x 2160 display. When folded, it looks like most regular smartphones, so it'll blend in easily without looking out of this world.

ZTE's purported Axom M could really change things in the smartphone world if it's done right, as they would beat Samsung to the foldable smartphone punch. I've been wanting a larger foldable smartphone, because I'm always doing so much at once... so a single screen for quick use and a foldable screen for multi-tasking would be perfect.

ZTE is hosting a press conference in New York City on October 17, and if the latest rumors from Android Authority are correct, we could see the world's first foldable smartphone unveiled.
