ZTE, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has announced that it would launch the world’s first smartphone with an under-screen camera on September 1.

The ZTE Axon 20 5G will be the first smartphone to feature the under-screen camera. The launch poster only includes the outline sketch of the device without any cutout on the display for the hole-punch or a notch. 

The ZTE Axon 5G did visit TENAA earlier this month and the listing revealed some specifications of the device. ZTE A2121 model, which is believed to be the Axon 20 5G, will feature a 6.92-inch OLED display with a 1,080×2,460 resolution.

The under-screen camera is likely to possess a 32MP front camera sensor. On the back, there would be a 64MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-camera sensor setup.

The exact name of the listed 2.4GHz Octa-core processor is unknown but we think that the ZTE Axon 20 5G might feature a Snapdragon 765G chip.

The listings further reveal that ZTE Axon 20 5G will have 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB RAM options and 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options. The phone runs on Android 10 OS and will pack a 4,120 mAh battery with fast charging support.

Last year, Oppo and Xiaomi had already shared their prototype of a smartphone with an under-screen camera. While there is no official confirmation on the launch, the two companies are said to commercially launch the futuristic camera and display tech next year.
