The agency on Sunday, 16th of August, introduced that it will debut the world’s first under-display camera smartphone in the form of ZTE Axon 20 5G on the primary of September.

The under-display selfie camera has been a hotly contested development for smartphone makers in the recent months while the likes of Xiaomi, Oppo, and Huawei all teasing their various takes it’s a development that could spell the depth of the notch punch hole and the pop-up selfie camera too.

This technology isn’t without its challenges though there’s no secret the reason may be many brands have looked at selfie cameras being hidden under the display is to give you a hundred percent of the full screen, no holds, no notches, but as we have always known, those lovely displays packed with pixels don’t let a lot of light into the sensor.

Redmi general manager Lu Weibing in January remarked that under displaced selfie cameras were impossible at the time due to high density or Led panels used on modern smartphones. This is because these tightly packed pixels meant the camera lying beneath them couldn’t receive the light required to produce decent images. At the same time, lower-resolution panels could be used instead; however, this could be seen as regression rather than progress.

Nevertheless, it seems that ZTE has found some way to eliminate these issues or at least feels confident enough that the current technology is adequate. However, it’s not clear who will supply ZTE  with the under-screen selfie cameras put the first solution was recently placed into mass production by Chinese form Vision ox.
