ZTE may unveil a dual-screen folding phone in October

Weeks ago, sources told Venturebeat‘s Evan Blass that ZTE and AT&T had teamed up to release a dual-screen, unfoldable smartphone codenamed the Axon Multy. Today, Android Authority followed up with leaked screenshots of a similarly-designed phone, which sources claimed might be called the Axon M. Regardless, both sets of details imply that this is the device ZTE will announce at an anticipated press conference in NYC on October 17th.

Both reports agreed that the Axon Multy/M has dual HD screens that unfold into a 6.8-inch, 1,920 x 2,160 display. Closed, it’s less than 10mm thick, according to Venturebeat; Blass’ source noted that the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 820 chip with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 3,120mAh battery and a single 20MP camera. Lastly, it will reportedly be available for $650 as an AT&T exclusive.

As Blass noted, the Axon Multy/M appears to have a design similar to ‘Project Valley,’ the unfolding smartphone design that Samsung aimed to release in 2017 but which has yet to materialize. Given that phone designs have settled into the flat single-touchscreen form factor for about a decade, even these reports of a new design promise something fresh. Even if, as Blass pointed out, the Axon Multy/M’s fully-unfolded 6.8-inch screen would only be half an inch larger than that on the recently-announced Galaxy Note8.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
