Hot on the heels of foldable phones announced by Royole and Samsung, smartphone makers are pushing a new category—dual-screen phones. Unlike foldable screens which are made of a single giant screen that can be folded from the middle, dual-screen phones have two separate screens—on both the front and back panels (remember the Nokia Communicator?).

Smartphones like the YotaPhone and Meizu Pro 7 have attempted dual displays before. A case in point is the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition, which has a 6.4-inch full HD AMOLED screen on the front and 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED screen on the back. It is currently available in China at 4,998 yuan (around 52,490).

“What differentiates the latest attempts from the past, is that they have been able to improve upon the idea of a dual-display with their innovations, offering full-screen colour displays on the secondary screen,” notes Prabhu Ram, head (industry intelligence group) at CyberMedia Research.
