It was only a few months ago that DxOMark reviewed the selfie camera on the ZTE Axon 20 Pro 5G. The phone was already open to see how the camera works under the screen. The ZTE Axon 20 5G was the first in the world to have an under-display camera and today we are learning about a next-gen model: the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra. This is another premium flagship Android smartphone from the Chinese OEM. A couple of months ago, we got excited about the launch of the second-generation under-display camera ZTE 30 Pro at Mobile World Congress.
The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra focuses primarily on the camera. The flagship device comes with a triple rear camera system consisting of 64MP cameras and an 8MP periscope zoom shooter. Imaging technology is more advanced with the Trinity camera system. The cameras are described as “superhuman” with a lot of innovations and features like a better AI algorithm and computational photography.
It is said that we are now in the third era of multiple cameras. ZTE and other OEMs continue to work on new features and enhancements, with more expected to be introduced in the coming days.
