The world’s first phone with under-display camera is finally available

We heard last month that the world’s first smartphone with an under-display camera was about to be launched in September. And indeed, here it is: the ZTE Axon 20 5G is now finally available and the under-display camera is more than just a concept.

The prototypes and concepts of the under-display camera have been around for a while, presented by OPPO, Xiaomi, and Samsung. OPPO even showed off a working device at MWC Shanghai 2019, but it looks like ZTE has beaten them with the actual launch of the device.

Other than the newly-designed camera, the phone itself is pretty mid-range when it comes to other features. I do love the design though, but I’d love to see how the under-display camera performs in real-life. The front camera, hidden under the glass, features a single lens and a 32MP sensor. In the back there’s a four-camera array: 64MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP.

The Axon 20 5G is available to order and it’s surprisingly cheap. The starting price is 2,198 yuan (around $320) in China. As for availability in other countries, there’s still no word on it, but we’ll update the article if we hear more. In the meantime, you can check out more information on ZTE’s website.
