The device may be the second dual screen smartphone from the company.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE is not unfamiliar with dual screen smartphones. The company had launched the dual screen ZTE Axon M this year in October. Now it looks ZTE will be launching more dual screen devices in the future. A ZTE device with model no ZTE Z999 has been spotted on TENAA.
As for the specs of the smartphone, the dual TFT screen measure 5 inches each and carry a resolution of FHD( 1080 x 1920 pixels). It is powered by a Quad-core clocked at 2.18 GHz. The device will be offering two memory variants: 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB internal storage.
Since the device can fold in the middle hinge, there is only one camera sensor of 20 MP along with an LED flash. It will run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat and will be backed by a 3,180 mAh battery. The device measures 150.8 × 71.64 × 12.1 mm and weighs 230 g. The device is mentioned to be available only in black colour.
The device looks like a smaller version of the ZTE Axon M with almost similar specs. The device was priced at Rs 46,999, so we can expect the ZTE Z999 to cost around Rs 35,000 competing against the popular flagship models. Also, the devices will be getting a lot of competition from the other manufacturers. Microsoft recently got a patent for a foldable smartphone which bears striking resemblances to the Z999 only Microsoft will be providing higher specs. Not only Microsoft, Apple, OPPO, Huawei and Samsung are also developing their foldable smartphone, and many are planning on launching it on next year.
