Launched in September 2020, the ZTE Axon 20 5G is the world’s first under-display camera that comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, a 6.92-inch FHD+ display, and the front camera accounts for 32MP which is placed under the display.
It seems that the UDC phones are not that successful or there is still some innovation left for the OEMs to make it like the usual lens. According to the latest evaluation by DXOMARK, the smartphone scored only 26 points for the selfie camera.
DXOMARK said that although the under-screen design of the ZTE Axon 20 5G front camera is impressive, it has made great sacrifices in terms of performance, resulting in poor image quality, which can be measured by almost any metric. , its performance is seriously below the standard.
The selfie score of ZTE Axon 20 5G is 26 points, and its exposure and focus are quite stable, but the unique under-screen camera design brings many image quality problems. When shooting still images, it is difficult for the Axon 20 5G to capture ideal colors.
Regardless of the shooting conditions, white balance color shifts usually appear, skin tones look unnatural, and strong color quantization and color vignetting make it even worse. The performance of its under-screen flash is not as good as the conventional display flash used in most mobile phones. The flash drop is severe, and the camera does not perform well in shooting due to the lack of light provided (usually the same in dim conditions).
The ZTE Axon 20 5G under-screen camera phone is 7.98 mm thick and weighs 198 grams. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 765G processor, a built-in 4220mAh battery, and supports 30W fast charging. In terms of camera, the phone comes with a front camera of 32MP. The device is equipped with a quad rear camera on the back which includes a 64MP main lens, an 8 MP Ultra-Wide camera, a 2MP lens for depth, and a 2MP for macro shots.
