The company’s smartphone will just have a display glass on the front, and a selfie camera neatly hidden within the screen. Satisfying!
The Axon 20 5G looks similar to any usual smartphone device, apart from its prominent feature.
According to ZTE, the 32-megapixel under-display camera was designed through the usage of material with high transparency, including inorganic and new organic films, including optimized software algorithms to balance the result of image quality.
It also has a dual-camera chip and integrated driver circuits that support color syncing between the display and selfie camera, and a unique driver circuit layout design prevents potential interference.
Of course, we can’t say much about the functionality without operating and testing the camera result in-person. There’s also uncertainty about how much value the feature provides over a hole-punch, a pop-up, or even a notch.
The phone has a Snapdragon 765G processor, which makes it to be 7.98mm thick while including 5G connectivity and a 4,220mAh battery. With a 6.92-inch OLED display screen, it also has a fingerprint sensor embedded within the display.

The rear camera array has an 8-megapixel ultrawide and 64-megapixel primary sensor, including macro sensors and 2-megapixel depth. It offers a variety of storage options for 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB, and it also has a slot for microSD card.
You can order the new smartphone called Axon 20 5G from China for 2,198 yuan (~$320). The company hasn’t yet announced its launch elsewhere.
