ZTE confirms that the Axon 30 5G will have a 120Hz display to go with the second-gen UD camera

Peter, 12 July 2021

ZTE continues its teaser campaign for the Axon 30 5G, the upcoming phone with a second-generation under-display camera. The company posted the first image last week and later confirmed that it has found a way to double the pixel density of the screen to 400 ppi in the area above the camera (this should make that area practically unnoticeable).

Now the company confirms that the screen is getting another upgrade – 120 Hz refresh rate. This is up from 90 Hz on the Axon 20 5G, which had a first-gen UD camera. The announcement comes with another image of the device.

It doesn’t show much, all you see is the wallpaper and the phone’s frame. That’s all you are supposed to see. With the first-generation system, the area over the camera was pretty noticeable, especially with a bright background. You can read more about the Axon 20 5G and its camera in our review.

That area has only 200 ppi pixel density, which prevented it from blending in. Doubling that for the Axon 30 5G should mean that the area and the rest of the screen have the same density (the phone is rumored to have a 1080p+ panel, though that hasn’t been officially confirmed).

ZTE hasn’t set an official reveal date for the Axon 30 5G, but rumor has it that it will happen on July 22. That is Thursday next week, so we may see one or two more teasers until the unveiling.

True, but only in appearance, first, we don't need to go all full back, we can have something like the Mi 11 Ultra where it is in the camera bump which thanks to the display become symmetrical. And even there, the most modern example we hav...

Well ip rating became a trend like others. It was mostly costumer fault and oem put ip 68. It's just like apple ip68 6m deep for 1.5hr gimmick. It can't even survive 1m mostly.

Dual display take alot of space which mean less room for battery and maximum 4k mah
