ZTE has just released an official render of the Axon 20 5G, the first smartphone with an underscreen selfie sensor. The image gives us a glimpse of the smartphone from the front and back. It is distinguished by a total absence of visible camera on the front face: no perforation in the screen, no notch and there is no need for a retractable module.
After fingerprint sensors, cameras appear under the screen of smartphones. Many manufacturers are working on this technology, one of the next big innovations in the industry. And as often, the first business model did not come from a mainstream brand. In 2018, Vivo was already the first manufacturer to offer a fingerprint reader under the screen of a smartphone. In 2020, it is another Chinese brand not very popular in our regions that is stealing the show from the leading players in the market.
Huawei could launch a smartphone with an underscreen selfie sensor in 2021, but the first smartphone to benefit from the technology is ZTE. The manufacturer has already confirmed a conference for September 1. This will be an opportunity to discover the ZTE Axon 20 5G because that’s what it is called. Once is not customary, we will not need the services of leakers to discover what the smartphone looks like.
ZTE Unveils Full Render of Axon 20 5G
The rendering was shared by Ni Fei, the president of the ZTE mobile division on the Chinese social network Weibo with less than two weeks of the presentation of the smartphone. As you can see from the image at the beginning of the article, it has no perforations in the screen, nor a notch on the front. This is not the first time that a smartphone has presented this particularity. The most interesting thing here is that the front camera is integrated into the panel and not in a retractable module housed in the upper edge.
In the picture, the smartphone screen is off. It’s impossible to get an idea of the size of the borders, but the rendering does allow us to see the rear of the smartphone which appears to be coated with a textured glass shell with edges curving slightly upwards. We also see 4 photo sensors whose configuration remains to be specified. For the rest, the ZTE Axon 20 5G should be equipped with a 6.92 ″ Full HD + OLED display, a Snapdragon 765G SoC supported by up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage depending on the leaks. The battery is said to have a capacity of 4120 mAh.
