ZTE has finally launched the vanilla ZTE Axon 30 months after the launch of the Axon 30 series. The phone features a second-generation under-display camera (UDC) and is the follow-up to last year’s Axon 20 5G. To note the Axon 20 5G was the world’s first phone with an under-display camera. Here, let’s take a look at the specs, features, and expected price of ZTE Axon 30 5G in Nepal along with its availability.
ZTE Axon 30 5G Overview:
Display and Design
Axon 30 5G comes equipped with outstanding display specs from its successor. It flaunts the same 6.92-inch 10-bit AMOLED panel with Full HD resolution. Similarly, the cinema-grade 20.5:9 aspect display covers 100% DCI-P3 and supports 1B colors.
According to ZTE, the handset uses an independent screen display chip which enables intelligent display optimization and intelligent pixel enhancement. Similarly, the display carries three different eye-protection certifications from TÜV, SGS, and UL. Also to reduce screen flickering in low light situations ZTE has used a DC Dimming option.
Meanwhile, ZTE replaced the glass back with a 3D polymer casing when compared to other Axon 30 models. However, the casing features a nano-level glow texture overlay.
Okay, let’s start with the second-gen under-display selfie camera. To make the camera invisible, ZTE has doubled the screen resolution above the camera to 400 PPI (from 200 PPI on the Axon 20). Further, it is made up of 7 different layers of highly translucent material. And for the megapixel count, the camera can shoot 16 million pixels per inch. It creates 2.24m pixels using 4-in-1-pixel binning.
Back there’s a quad-camera array led by the 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor. A high-speed 8MP, a 2MP depth, and a 5MP macro sensor complete the setup. The setup lacks OIS. Although there are not many changes in the camera, there has undoubtedly been a radical overhaul of the camera module.
Performance and Memory
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 SoC lies at the heart of the smartphone. While it is not the most powerful chipset available, it is a significant improvement over the Snapdragon 765G on the Axon 20 5G.
The device comes with up to 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Furthermore, the virtual RAM capability allows users to use 5GB of internal storage like RAM.
Battery and Miscellaneous
The phone is powered by a respectable 4200mAh battery that supports 55W rapid charging. In addition, it also supports USB Power Delivery and Quick Charge 4+ capability.
The smartphone also includes an optical under-display fingerprint sensor, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C 3.1 port.
