While many will be looking forward to what Samsung will reveal next month, ZTE is looking attention to what has been prepared for next week first. Foldable and versatile displays are among the significant dreams of smartphone makers, and another “impossible dream” is returning to the spotlight in only a couple of days. The ZTE Axon 30 5G is simply round the corner, and therefore the company just revealed vital details, including the phone’s unusual design.
The ZTE Axon 30 5G’s headlining feature will be its under-display camera or UDC, the second of its kind. ZTE has thus far remained silent on the improvements it made to deal with the issues of its first UDC. Those teasers might still are available the times ahead, closer to the phone’s debut.
ZTE is revealed what the phone would appear as if, and it seems to be trying to be Huawei to the punch. Like the Huawei P50, the Axon 30 5G will sport four cameras grouped into two and enclosed in a circle. Unlike Huawei’s design, however, ZTE has opted for a standard rectangular bump that sharply contrasts with those circles.
That makes for a rather odd design that may not appeal to some people. Those could be willing to ignore that quirk if the cameras are good. ZTE hasn’t exactly been known for its camera performance. Therefore the Axon 30 5G’s success will depend on that under-display camera.
ZTE’s teaser reveals that the Axon 30 5G is going to be announced on July 27. Specs for the phone remain unknown, but an alleged TENAA entry gives it a Snapdragon 870, not a Snapdragon 888, 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. Just about on par with any high-end flagship this year, they are making the gamble even riskier for that lone UDC highlight.
