ZTE introduces its 2nd-gen in-display camera technology with the new Axon 30 5G.
The company first introduced the under-display camera technology with the Axon 20 5G. With the ZTE Axon 30 5G, the technology has been entirely redone with rearranged pixels and higher transparency cathodes for better image quality. They have also increased the resolution of the camera area from 200ppi to 400ppi.
This 16-megapixel UD camera is behind the enormous 6.92-inch AMOLED screen with an FHD+ pixel resolution and 10-bit colors.
ZTE rigged the display with a 7-layer structure that includes increased transmittance materials, a new UDC Pro screen chip, and an ACE circuit arrangement. The company claims this allows more light to enter the camera sensor to provide better clarity than the previous model.
The cameras on the back are nothing short of interesting, too. The main one has a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor. It’s paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro, and the obligatory depth sensor.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage. The battery capacity is at 4,200mAh with a 55W fast charging support.
The ZTE Axon 5G has a price of CNY2,198 (around Php17,000) for the 6GB/128GB base model, while the top-tier 12GB/256GB variant is at CNY3,098 (around Php24,000). It will be available in China starting August 3 while a global version has been confirmed to come out soon.
