ZTE Double cellphone concept offers a 360-degree hinge, which you could flip the clamshell one full circle. You have probably noticed about the solar cells across its facade that will help to harvest green solar energy while being exposed to sun in your car dashboard, or while you are having a cup of StarBuck’s coffee, you could sit near the windows and let the ZTE Double exposed to the graceful morning or afternoon sun shines.
