ZTE Axon 20 with World’s First Under Screen Camera to Launch on September 1: Expected Price, Specifications


An upcoming smartphone from ZTE has been in the news recently, the Axon 20. This upcoming phone is said to be the world’s first commercialized phone to feature an under-display front-facing camera. While the phone had been leaked on multiple occasions, there was no official confirmation about it. That changes today. ZTE has now confirmed the existence of the device by announcing its launch date. Let us have a look.

ZTE Axon A20 is launching on 1st September

ZTE has announced on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo, that the brand will be launching the Axon 20 5G smartphone on the 1st of September 2020, in China. The announcement post is accompanied by an image, which shows the front facia of the Axon 20 5G partially. And as you can see, it doesn’t seem to have a traditional notch or a punch-hole on the display. It doesn’t seem to have a pop-up camera either. The lack of a notch, punch-hole, and a pop-up camera suggests that the phone will have an under-display camera, just like the leaks and rumors have suggested so far.

ZTE Axon 20 specifications we know so far

The ZTE Axon 20 was recently spotted on the TENAA certification platform, which reveals that the phone will have a 6.92-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The selfie camera of the smartphone that is said to be hidden under the display has a 32MP resolution. There is a quad-camera setup at the rear, flaunting a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP camera, which is most probably an ultrawide sensor, and two 2MP units, which could most probably be macro and depth-measuring cameras.

The ZTE Axon 20 5G is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz. This processor is speculated to be the Snapdragon 765G. The phone has 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB RAM options and 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options. The phone runs on the Android 10 operating system. Lastly, the ZTE Axon 20 5G packs a 4120mAh battery with support for fast charging. According to its listing on TENAA, the phone will come in two color options, white and blue.

Going by the specifications, the ZTE Axon 20 5G seems to have specifications of a mid-range smartphone. However, it could be pricier than the rest of the mid-range smartphones due to the implementation of the under-display camera. Expect the smartphone to have a price tag equivalent to INR 30,000 to INR 40,000 in China.
