When you think of Android brands, you might think bigger brands like Samsung, LG, or Huawei, but it seems that maybe we should start paying more attention to ZTE. This is because the company has announced that its ZTE Axon 20 5G will be available on the 21st of December.
Its launch also means that ZTE will be the first smartphone manufacturer to launch a smartphone that comes with an under-display front-facing camera. The company did previously show off the handset back in September, but now it looks like we finally have a release date to look forward to.
At the moment, the phone will be limited to a handful of markets which includes United Kingdom, European Union, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa, but hopefully we’ll see its available expand to other markets in the future as well, although those of us living stateside should probably not get our hopes up.
In terms of specs, the ZTE Axon 20 5G will sport a 6.92-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a quad-camera setup on the back, liquid cooling, 30W fast charging, and a 4,220mAh battery.
While ZTE will be the first to the market with a smartphone with an under-display camera, they are not alone in pursuing the tech as it is probably the only elegant solution to getting rid of the notch.
