As expected, ZTE on September 1 announced its Axon 20 5G smartphone, billing as the world’s first mass-market device with a camera under the display.

Using a combination of five different technologies ZTE is able to avoid a notch, hole-punch, or bezel for the front-facing camera. That’s right, it’s under the 6.9-inch FHD+ OLED screen.

The Axon 20 5G runs Android Q and draws power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with 6GB/8GB RAM options. Storage capacity is 128GB/256GB with a microSD expansion card slot to allow for up to 2TB external media.

The rear includes a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel wide angle (120 degrees), 2-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel depth camera. Around front is a 32-megapixel selfie camera.

Other specifications in the ZTE Axon 20 5G include a 4,200mAh battery with 30W fast charge and 5G connectivity. Included in the phone are some nine sensors to precisely detect temperature as well as a heat dissipation system to keep the phone cool.


Now for the bad news, at least for US consumers. Don’t look for the ZTE Axon 20 5G in the short term. For now it’s relegated to China where it will carry a price of RMB 2198, or about $320 USD.
