Remember the “dumb phone” days when we were able to choose between candy bar phones, flip phones, and sliders? I miss those days, and I think it’s pretty clear that ZTE does too.

ZTE’s crazy new Axon M smartphone isn’t anything like what you’ve seen in recent years. It has two 5.2-inch Full HD displays, which allow you to multitask like you never could before.

Under the hood, the company is keeping things surprisingly modest with the Axon M. You won’t find a Snapdragon 835, 6 GB of RAM, or Android Oreo here. The Axon M sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and microSD expansion up to 2 TB (though the box will state up to 256 GB). There’s also a single rear 20 MP camera that takes care of both the rear- and front-facing camera needs, a 3,180 mAh battery, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and it’s running Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

Check out the full spec list below:
