ZTE Axon 20 5G: The Under-Display Camera Phone
ZTE Axon 20 5G is another hot release in 2020 after Microsoft Surface Duo, Samsung Z2 Fold, and Motorola Raz 2. The idea is to simplify multitasking.

ZTE Axon 20 5G
No notch. No hole punch. No pop-out or flip-over camera, either. Instead, ZTE has achieved what many consider the holy grail of smartphone selfie systems: an under-display camera. It’s shipping on the ZTE Axon 20 5G, a phone with no price or release date. (If the company shares them, we’ll be sure to let you know.) The handset has a 6.92-inch, FHD+ OLED screen with a narrow 20.5:9 aspect ratio — which is just a fraction wider than Sony’s cinematic Xperia 1 ii — and support for 10-bit color depth and all of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
ZTE states that this under-display camera technology has been made possible through the interplay between five core technologies: a special display material, a dual-control chip, a unique driver circuit, a special pixel matrix, and a self-developed shooting algorithm. The new display material improves light input to the front camera, while the chip and circuit solve the synchronization problems of color and conventional displays when using an under-display camera. The special pixel matrix optimizes the pixels to improve display consistency, while the algorithm optimizes and improves the clarity of photos. The general manager of ZTE’s Axon products shared a sample from the front-facing camera of the Axon 20 5G to demonstrate the kind of picture quality that’s possible.
