ZTE Axon 30

It’s official. The ZTE AXON 30 phone has been announced by the Chinese OEM with a new generation under display camera. The “full-screen trendsetter” is ready to face the future and offer revolutionary user experiences. The flagship mobile device is meant to deliver a strong performance and sustained power underneath that sleek design. After several weeks of teaser, the ZTE AXON 30 is now ready for public consumption. We saw a demo recently and that leak before the product launch and now it’s here.

ZTE Corporation’s new Axon 30 now features an upgraded under-display camera. As the first in the world to make an under-display camera smartphone commercially available, ZTE knows what the consumers want. The new display is better “with further reinforced performance and comprehensive upgrades” as described by ZTE Senior Vice President and Mobile Device Division President Ni Fei in a press release.

ZTE looked into several technical challenges to make the front camera invisible and yet be able to deliver high quality images. The company has been focusing on these six core technologies: unique driver circuits, special pixel matrix, selfie camera, independent display chip, larger light-sensitive 4-in-1 2.24um equivalent large pixel camera, and an in-house selfie algorithm.
