Fingerprint scanner or retina has only recently appeared in science fiction films, and today is widely used. In recent months, the focus is on frameless screens. ZTE and AT & T are working on something already. Worth waiting?
ZTE and US mobile operator AT & T are working on a dual-screen smartphone. When unfolded, they would form one 6.8 inch diagonal. It's an inch more than the panel used on the Galaxy S8. The interesting fact is that after assembly the device is to have a thickness of only 10 mm, that is only two millimeters thicker than the aforementioned flagship.
Deployed smartphones were already there
Remember Kyocera Echo? This is a 2011 dual-screen smartphone released. Once assembled, it resembles a typical phone, but when we open it we will see something that many associate with the Nintendo DS. ZTE and AT & T have decided to go in this direction and have designed a model called Axon Multy . The smartphone will be different from that presented in 2011 by Kyocera. Another way will be for example how to attach two parts of the device. Now, after unfolding, both screens will "merge" and create one with a diagonal of 6.8 inches . Although this manufacturer does not provide, we can guess that they will be able to work independently.
The specification of the new device does not grab, although the operation should be fluid. Both screens will have Full HD resolution (1080×1920 pixels) and will create a single monitor with resolution of 1920×2160 pixels . The smartphone will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, known as with Sony Experia X Perfomance, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, and OnePlus 3. Adreno 520 graphics, 4 GB Ram and 32GB of built-in memory. On board we also find a decent camera with a resolution of 20 megapixels. The whole they have for me is a small cell with a capacity of 3120 mAh.
Will the new smartphone conquer the market? I doubt it. I think the most important thing in this case will be software
Two screens can be very useful at work. While Android has a screen-sharing function, it does not work with all applications, and the use of it is a nuisance. It will certainly be easier to write messages on a full QWERTY keyboard, and the smartphone would also satisfy mobile entertainment fans, because the lower screen could display buttons and play almost as if it were padding. It is doubtful whether the final product will go to European markets. Sales records will not beat too much, but maybe this is the niche that ZTE will fill? We'll see. Personally I would like to test this device. Source: Venturebeat
