The ZTE Axon 20 5G was teased and later anticipated because it would come with an under-display selfie camera. It is the first in the world and it will definitely not be the last. The Chinese OEM was able to get it to work, but the results are not that great. In fact, we have seen how the camera works under the screen and we think it can be improved even more. After ZTE, we are looking forward to Samsung’s version once the under-panel camera is applied to the next flagship phone.
As for the ZTE Axon 20 5G, the phone has hit DxOMark recently with not so favorable results. Focusing on the selfie camera, the phone only scored 26.
