WHILE most aim for larger more immersive displays, it was something out of the box that was causing a lot of buzz at Mobile World Congress.

ZTE used the event to launch its Axon M, a dual-screen, folding phone.

The smartphone comes with two 5.2 inch displays, with the second screen folding backwards, along with a 20-megapixel camera and 4GB of RAM

Users can multi-task like never before by spreading the phone's functions across the two screens.

They can respond to a text on one screen while watching a video on the other, or snap pictures on the lower screen while watching them simultaneously appear on the upper one.

There is no word yet on whether the dual-screen, folding phone will be available in Australia.
