If you’re not a fan of smartphone notches and pop-up cameras, you might want to check out ZTE’s upcoming ZTE Axon 20 5G phone.
The Shenzen-based company announced on 17 August that it will launch the ZTE Axon 20 5G in China on 1 September. The ZTE Axon 20 5G will feature an under-display camera, with ZTE claiming that it’s the first mass-produced 5G smartphone in the world to have such a feature.
“All the major industry players have been working on the under-display camera smartphone,” they said in their announcement. “Consumers have also witnessed the evolution of smartphone display forms from notch display, water-drop notch display, pop-up selfie camera smartphone, to hole punch display. “By launching the world's first 5G smartphone with under-display camera, ZTE will further promote the development of display technologies in the smartphone industry, thereby bringing a revolutionized experience to all consumers.”
No official specs were released, but the rumoured specs on GSMArena include a 32MP selfie camera and four rear cameras, including a 64MP and 8MP one. It’s also said to have a 6.92-inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 1080x2460 pixels.
The ZTE Axon 20 5G will apparently be powered by the mid-range Qualcomm SDM765 Snapdragon 765G. Storage and RAM options include 64GB/6GB, 128GB/8GB, and 256GB/12GB. It’ll also have a 4,120mAh battery.
ZTE’s first commercial 5G phone, the ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G, was released in China, the Nordic Countries, and the Middle East. The ZTE Axon 20 5G will likely be released in those locations as well, but let’s hope it comes to other Asian countries like Malaysia as well.
