Ni Fei, president of ZTE mobile devices confirmed via Weibo their intention of launching the first under-display Smartphone. While many brands have been working on such technology, it appears ZTE might beat them to it. Now the company’s official page on Weibo has already mentioned that the phone will be called ZTE Axon 20 5G instead of the previous name spotted in TENAA which is ZTE A20 5G.
The ZTE A20 5G or as per the official name ZTE Axon 20 5G comes with model number ZTE A2121 and been spotted recently on TENAA. The website has also revealed some specifications of the phone as well as some original images. From the image, it does not hint any presence of the physical camera in the front which means that the under-display camera is really coming with this phone.
As we know about the under-display camera of the smartphone, the company is trying to develop a new technique to improve the quality for the under-display camera. As ZTE is not the first company to produce the under-display camera smartphone but this technology we have already seen a year ago from Oppo, but ZTE will be the first smartphone brand that will mass produce an under-display camera smartphone.
The main hurdle in such an under-display camera smartphone is the poor light transmittance through a screen. But it seems that ZTE has managed to circumvent this hurdle by using a panel developed by Visionox, one of the biggest OLED manufacturers in China. As per the intel of GSMArena, the company has already completed the R&D of the UD camera and the company says it works by optimizing the pixel arrangement around the camera’s lens.
