ZTE’s release schedule in 2021 is a bit odd, as we’ve already seen the Axon 30 Ultra released, but until now, have not learned much about the “regular” Axon 30. That’s all changed, as the Axon 30 5G is now slated to launch on July 27th.
While the Axon 30 Ultra pulled some design inspiration from the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it seems that the Axon 30 5G will pull some inspiration from the unreleased Huawei P50. In the event announcement post, ZTE shared renders of both the front and the back of the phone.
This render confirms that ZTE will be introducing its second-generation under-display selfie camera. After the Axon 20 was the first phone to feature one of these sensors, it’s good to see that ZTE didn’t give up on the idea after the first iteration was met with disappointment. As for the rear camera system, it appears that ZTE is swinging for the fences.
The two rings on the back of the phone house a total of four different cameras. The top ring will be home to a 64MP lens, while the bottom ring houses 8MP, 5MP, and 2MP sensors. But we aren’t expecting these cameras to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S21 Ultra or even the OnePlus 9 Pro.
Other rumors regarding the Axon 30 5G include the Snapdragon 870 for power paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The phone will be available in a few different colors, including one with some color racing stripes lining the left side of the phone.
