Forget those hole-punch, waterdrop notch selfie cameras, the revolution is here. ZTE Axon 20 5G has been launched and it is the world’s first smartphone to introduce “Under-Display Selfie Camera”, sounds weird huh? But this the reality now and we will briefly discuss the technology later.
The origin of the phone in China. The company was teasing about this phone for a few weeks and now it finally launched. Now, we can finally call a smartphone that has a perfect full-screen display. Let’s check about the other specifications of this phone.
The dual-SIM (Nano) ZTE Axon 20 5G runs on Android 10 OS and is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 765G SoC processor. This phone has three different combinations of its RAM and internal storage. They are as follows: 6GB + 128GB variant, 8GB + 128GB variant and 8GB + 256GB variant. Users can extend their storage by external MicroSD card and the storage is expandable up to 2TB. This phone has four color options. They are Blue, Black, Orange, and Purple.
Now let’s talk about the display. This phone features a huge 6.92-inches full HD+ (1,080×2,460 pixels) display with an aspect ratio of 20:5:9. The display has a 90Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The display also supports 10-bit color and covers 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut.
In terms of cameras, the ZTE Axon 20 5G has a quad rear camera setup which includes a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, a 2-megapixel tertiary sensor, and finally a 2-megapixel quaternary sensor. The twist is in the front camera. You can’t find a front camera as it is not visible. This phone comes with a 32-megapixel front camera sensor that stays hidden until you need it. This is called the “Under-Display Selfie Camera”. You can easily open your front camera and nobody can even see it.
Let’s talk about the connectivity options of this phone.
