The ZTE Axon 20 was the first commercially available smartphone with an under-display front-facing camera. The Chinese maker improved its technology and its CEO said earlier it will arrive with the Nubia Z30 Pro on May 20.
Today, the nubia brand officially confirmed the date on Weibo, revealing the first poster of the new phone as well.
The new under-display technology was already demoed at MWC Shanghai which took place in February. Ni Fei, President of Mobile Devices at ZTE, posted an image revealing the position of the camera is practically invisible, which is a massive upgrade over the first-gen solution in the Axon 20 that had a prominent square due to the basic pixel redistribution.
There are very few known specs of the upcoming Z30 Pro smartphone. Leaked pictures suggest an AMOLED display, four cameras with 100X hybrid zoom (which is a combination of the optical from the telephoto lens and digital from the software). We’ll have the full picture in less than 10 days, but we expect to see some teasers leading up to the launch.
