ZTE Axon 30 5G launched with a second-generation under-display camera

After lots of leaks and rumors, ZTE has unveiled the ZTE Axon 30 5G in China. The phone comes with a second-generation under-display camera which is the highlighting point. Let’s have a look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the ZTE Axon 30 5G in Nepal.

ZTE Axon 30 5G Overview:

Display and Design

Here, ZTE Axon 30 5G comes with a massive 6.92-inch OLED display with a Full HD resolution. The panel has support for a 120Hz refresh rate and can reproduce up to 1B colors.

ZTE Axon 30 5G Under Display Camera

To make the front-facing camera invisible, ZTE has doubled (as compared with Axon 20) the PPI density above the selfie camera to 400PPI. It features a 7-layer structure that includes higher transmittance materials, a UDC Pro screen display chipset, and an ACE Circuit arrangement.

According to ZTE, these technologies allow more light to the camera sensor which results in better image quality. Further, the front-facing camera uses 4-in-1 binning capturing 2.24µm equivalent pixels.

ZTE Axon 30 5G Design

On the back, the handset has a rectangular camera bump housing two circular modules and a LED flash. It has a glass back design but the frame is made up of plastic. Moreover, it is available in two color options: Black and Green.


Moving on, you get a quad-camera setup on the back. There is a 64MP Sony IMX682 primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. Unfortunately, it lacks OIS which we were expecting in this smartphone. For ultrawide angle shots, it has an 8MP lens with a 120-degree field of view.
