After a long wait, the first smartphone with camera was finally presented under the screen. It’s called ZTE Axon 20 5G, and even though it is a device destined for the intermediate market, it promises to stay in history.
Although other brands are preparing their option in this regard, ZTE has gone ahead and brought the first commercially available equipment. And its price will start in inviting € 269 (in China).
The major problems associated with a camera under the screen are the lack of light, which would mean low quality. In addition, it was also noticeable in several tests that the screen area where the camera was positioned did not have the same brightness or colors.
According to ZTE, the panel has a special coating that allows for great transparency and light input. And this 32MP sensor is able to regulate the necessary light input depending on the case. The pixels have also been worked on so that there are no color problems in that area of the screen.
The general specifications are not the most important in an equipment like this, but it comes prepared for the future. Its processor is the Snapdragon 765G (the same as the OnePlus Nord), which means you can expect support for 5G.
The base version has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. But versions of 8GB / 128GB and 8GB / 256GB were also presented. It has 30W fast charging for a 4220mAh battery.
It has a generous 6.92 inch OLED screen with FullHD + resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The biometric sensor is built into the screen. At the back we have four cameras, the main one being 64MP, supported by a wide angle, macro and depth sensor.
Since the goal of the industry has been to deliver a “full screen” experience, we have gone through several mutations to arrive at this ZTE Axon 20 5G. We saw the notch, the drop, the hole, the rotating chamber or the pop-up mechanism. Now that we get to the camera under the screen, it is polishing this technology.
Pricing and availability
It is worth mentioning that the ZTE Axon 20 5G was, for now, only presented in China with values that start at 269 € and go up to 343 € in the most powerful model. There are currently no global release dates.
