After teasing for a while, ZTE has actually followed through on its promise to launch the world’s first commercial smartphone with a selfie cam embedded in the screen. The Axon 20 5G ends up being a fairly mid-range device, aside from its headline feature.
ZTE says the under-display 32- megapixel video camera has actually been enabled due to making use of “high transparency material that consists of new organic and inorganic films” in addition to enhanced software application algorithms to offset the influence on image quality.
Obviously, it’s tough to judge this without seeing the phone face to face and checking the electronic camera in practice. It’s also questionable how much value the function uses over a hole-punch, a pop-up, or even a notch. We’ll see.
The phone is based around a Snapdragon 765 G processor, which is most likely what allows it to be simply 7.98 mm thick while including 5G connection and a 4,220 mAh battery. The screen is a 6.92- inch OLED with an in-display fingerprint sensing unit.
The rear camera variety consists of a 64- megapixel main sensor and 8-megapixel ultrawide with 2-megapixel depth and macro sensing units. There are options for 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage, and there’s a microSD card slot.
The Axon 20 5G is offered to purchase in China right now beginning at 2,198 yuan (~$320). There’s no word yet on a possible release in other places.
