ZTE Axon 30 Hands-on: An under-display camera that stays out of sight, out of mind

Pop-up cameras and notches are more or less a thing of the past, and the hole-punch camera has taken their place. While it's nowhere near as aesthetically pleasing as a purely bezel-less experience, they have been the best option for anyone looking for a minimal bezel in a smartphone for the past year. However, the...

Under-display cameras: Do you think they’re worth it right now?

Just as 2020 was a monumental year for foldable smartphones, 2021 is shaping up to be a significant year for devices with under-display cameras. Although ZTE launched the first phone with an under-display camera last year, it was riddled with issues, and other manufacturers didn't adopt the technology this year. Today, you have a couple...

ZTE takes another shot at under-display camera tech with the Axon 30

After weeks of teasing, ZTE today unveiled the Axon 30, the company’s second smartphone with an under-display camera. The first attempt, the Axon 20, was a failed one; the selfie camera on that thing produced blurry photos in all lighting conditions, and the camera was clearly visible to the naked eye when displaying a light-colored...

ZTE teases Axon 30 with an improved under-display camera

Last year ZTE unveiled an intriguing phone called the Axon 20, the first commercial smartphone with an under-display selfie camera. The concept of a device without a notch, punch-hole, or pop-up mechanism sounded great on paper. However, the real-world experience was mediocre at best. As we noted in our review, images produced by Axon 20's...

The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra has three 64MP cameras, a 144Hz display and Snapdragon 888

ZTE’s Axon 20 5G made headlines last year as the first commercial smartphone with an under-display selfie camera. As impressive as the idea was on paper, it turned out to be a failed attempt as the images produced from the under-display camera were not great, to say the least. ZTE clearly doesn’t want to repeat...

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra leak reveals ridiculous camera setup and more

ZTE is reportedly close to launching a follow-up to last year’s Axon 20 5G — a device that was first to bring a sub-display selfie camera to the market. The Axon 30 Ultra will be suitably powerful, but it could lack the feature that made the Axon 20 5G stand out. According to Evan Blass, ZTE...

ZTE teases the Axon 30 Pro 5G with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888

Although much of the focus has been on Huawei, another Chinese tech company, ZTE, had a run-in with the former Trump administration. Fortunately for the company, the U.S. eventually lifted its ban, allowing the brand to sell smartphones in the country. Since the company overcame this debacle, its international product launches have been rather low-key...
