Axon 20 5G last year from ZTE was the world’s first commercially available phone underneath its display to put a front-facing camera. For phone technology, t was an impressive step forward, but there was one big problem the camera sucked. Lousy pictures were taken by it, and the module distorted the display in certain settings. Things didn’t exactly work out the way that the company hoped for.
ZTE is now trying again with the updated Axon 30 over its predecessor, which seems to improve. On Tuesday, the company has announced introducing the 2nd attempt at an under-display selfie camera. The phone has been rumored and teased for the past few months, but now the wait is over.
Features Axon 30 –
- It has a 6.92-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution—all powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 5G chipset.
- There is a four-camera array on the rear of the device, with a 64-megapixel main, 5-megapixel macro lens, 8-megapixel 120-degree wide-angle, and an additional depth-of-field lens. The battery has 55W fast charging and a 4200mAh capacity.
- There are options of 128GB / 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 6GB / 8GB / 12GB of RAM.
- The company is packing various camera shooting modes and filters to give exactly what the users want, no matter the situation.
- The most interesting updates are to the under-display camera. For these under-display modules to work, users have to use transparent materials in that area of the screen, which is recent developments and lower-quality than regular display tech.
- The company says it’s doubled the pixel density in this area from 200 PPI to 400 PPI and would make for more seamless integration with the display.
- The under-display camera is also improved as per the company.
