While OPPO showcased its under-display camera solution, the company hasn’t commercially launched a phone yet that employs the technology. It should be interesting to see how ZTE has managed to iron out the issue of poor light transmitting through a screen since this is one of the main hurdles companies are facing with this solution. The display could be developed by Visionox, which is one of the biggest OLED manufacturers in China. ZTE claims to have completed the R&D process for the under-display camera and says that it is optimising the pixel arrangement.

The TENAA listing of the ZTE Axon 20 5G revealed that it will flaunt a 6.92-inch OLED display, a 64MP primary camera, and a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. While the chipset details aren’t clear, it could ship with the Snapdragon 765G SoC. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the ZTE Axon 20 5G but since the launch is just two weeks from now, we don’t have to wait for much longer to learn more.
