ZTE’s Axon 40 Ultra puts the camera under the screen | Digital Trends Spanish

ZTE is committed to developing the Under Display Camera (UDC), and its latest smartphone, the Axon 40 Ultra, you have a new version installed under your 6.8-inch screen. The surprisingly powerful phone is also surprisingly reasonably priced, and will be available globally in the near future.

Let’s start with the UDC. Through smart technology and lessons learned from previous versions, ZTE says the camera on the Axon 40 Ultra will take better photos, while also making sure the screen around it is clearer. The 16-megapixel UDC’s pixels are more sensitive to light and the new AI helps minimize noise, plus the camera will reduce glare and fog in real time, promising “improved image clarity and transparency.”

The UDCs have had a rough start in life, and even Samsung struggled to get them right in the Galaxy ZFold 3. On the Axon 40 Ultra it sits on top of a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2480 x 1116 pixels, plus a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a dramatic 71-degree curve on each side, giving it a frameless look and reminiscent of phones like the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. On the back are three cameras with 64MP each.

The 64MP main camera is joined by a 64MP wide-angle camera, plus a 64MP telephoto camera capable of taking 5.7x optical zoom images. Features include optical and electronic image stabilization, 8K video recording, and various modes, including several for taking photos of the night sky. All of this is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and a 5,000mAh battery with 65W fast charging.

ZTE does not mention the software in its press release. ZTE no longer lives in the shadow of its previous restrictions, so Google Play and Google Mobile Services should be on board. However, it is unknown what version it will be, or what software update commitment ZTE has at the time of writing. It is also unknown which 5G bands the phone supports worldwide.

And the price? The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra is priced at $799 or £709, and will be available from June 21 through ZTE’s online store. The global launch includes the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, most of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra was a pleasant surprise and received a recommendation in our review, and we expect the positive trend to continue with the sequel.
