On the evening of September 1, ZTE held an online conference to officially unveil the world’s first commercial under-screen camera phone, the ZTE Axon 20 5G. ZTE AXON A20 5G price starting from just 2,198 yuan (about ₹23,500)
According to the official statement, the ZTE Axon 20 5G comes with a huge 6.92-inch OLED FHD+(2460*1080) screen with 10Bit color depth support, 90Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling, and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 high color gamut, with a resolution of FHD+ and a screen aspect ratio of 20.5:9.
What’s more, ZTE has overcome industry challenges such as balancing the screen display function with the camera function, brightness balance between the main display area and the off-screen camera area, and AI-optimized the camera effect to achieve a clear and transparent front camera image quality.
To achieve this goal, ZTE has done a lot of experiments, starting from the five major aspects of materials, chips, circuits, pixels, and algorithms, and solved the technical problems of the under-screen camera through ultra-high-transparent micron-grade new materials, independently driven screen display chips, highly integrated minimalist circuit design, original natural pixel arrangement, and triple front camera spiritual transmission algorithm.
In addition to under-screen camera technology, ZTE’s Axon 20 5G also features under-screen light-sensing technology, screen sound, and under-screen optical fingerprint technology, enabling zero screen apertures and a truly full-screen display. Beyond, the ZTE AXON 20 5G remains thin and light, weighing 198 grams and measuring 7.98 mm thick, allowing it to be used in one hand.
It also features an innovative light sensor that automatically adjusts screen brightness based on the light environment it is in, making it possible for users to see clearly in sunlight and not glare in dark environments.
In terms of configuration, the ZTE Axon 20 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G mobile platform with 6/8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of onboard storage, offers a 32MP front-facing under-screen camera and a rear-facing 64MP + 8MP super wide-angle + 2MP depth of field + 2MP macro quad-camera, with a 4220mAh battery capacity and 30W fast charging support.
The ZTE Axon 20 5G supports all the 5G bands of China’s four major carriers. With its 5G Super Antenna 2.0 PDS antenna, the ZTE Axon 20 5G not only boosts download speeds by 30 percent but also smartly avoids signal congestion and avoids the embarrassment of not being able to connect to the Internet even when the signal is full.
As for cooling, it is equipped with 9 temperature sensors, liquid cooling + nano carbon fiber + multi-layer graphite, forming a triple intelligent cooling system, which significantly improves cooling capacity.
