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

Unfortunately, I don't really think the technology...
