A little over a few ago, we reported companies like Xiaomi and Oppo were working on under-display cameras to remove the notch on smartphones. This works by having the phone display a black bar (that means transparent) above the camera while taking a photo, and reverting to normal display once the photo is taken or video is shot. At the time, picture quality left to be desired, so more work was needed, but the first phone with an under-display camera is now available for ZTE Axon 20 5G selling for 2,198 RMB (~$322) and up in China. ZTE Axon 20 5G specifications: SoC – Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G octa-core processor with 1x Kryo 475 Prime (Cortex-A76 class) @ 2.4GHz, 1x Kryo 475 Gold (Cortex-A76 class) @ 2.2GHz, 6x Kryo 475 Silver (Cortex-A55 class) @ 1.8GHz System Memory – 6 or 8GB RAM Storage – 128GB or 256GB flash MicroSD card slot (shared with one Nano SIM slot) Display – 6.92-inch’ FHD+ […]
