ZTE Axon 20 5G: First smartphone with a camera under the display

ZTE presented its new mid-range smartphone, the ZTE Axon 20 5G, just over a week ago. The special thing about this smartphone is not so much the built-in hardware, but rather the "under-display camera" technology.

ZTE uses a special OLED display to let enough light fall on the camera sensor. The front camera area has a different pixel structure than the rest of the display. This pixel structure in the area of ​​the front camera is also clearly visible, but ZTE solved this Problem significantly better than Oppo and Vivo in the previous year. This makes it the first smartphone that will come onto the mass market with this technology. ZTE isn't the first manufacturer to already use this technology, because, as already mentioned, there were a few at the end of last year Prototypes of Oppo and Vivo, which already used this technology. But there were only Prototypes that never made it to the mass market.


The rest of the smartphone is then rather unspectacular, but completely solid.

ZTE installed a 6,92-inch OLED panel in a 20,5: 9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels. ZTE does not follow the current trend of edge displays and instead relies on a flat display that also includes a fingerprint sensor. The battery is a total of 4220mAh and can be recharged with up to 30W via Quick Charge. 30W is completely sufficient, but the battery could be a bit bigger with such a large display (6,92 inches).

There are four sensors on the back: a 64-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f / 1.8, an 8-megapixel camera with ultra-wide angle and 2 sensors with two megapixels each for macro images and depth effects. The front camera has an impressive 32 megapixels.

The ZTE Axon 20 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, so 5G is also possible.

ZTE Axon 20 5G: price, availability and colors

The smartphone will be available in black, white, purple and orange. Unfortunately, the ZTE Axon 20 5G will initially only be available in China. The equivalent of the smaller version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory costs around 269 euros. The larger version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory costs the equivalent of around 342 euros. It will be delivered from September 10th.
