ZTE announces it will launch the world's first under-display camera phone
The under-display selfie camera is the natural successor to its punch-hole counterpart. They both involve a lens set into a screen's panel; however, it also overlays it with active layers that can become clear in response to certain impulses in order to deploy the sensor in question. This may accord the advantage of a true edge-to-edge display without the need for front-facing sensors shunted off into a moving pop-up component.
Based on recent leaks, it was projected that OPPO - or, if not this company, perhaps Huawei or Xiaomi - would be the OEM to debut this technology in a new phone. However, according to a Weibo post by Ni Fei, it will be his brand, ZTE, that will reach this milestone instead.
As the CEO sent this announcement from a heretofore-unreleased device called the A20 5G (or ZTE A2121, according to an alleged telecommunications registration), it is now thought that this upcoming product is to be the smartphone in question.
Its maker is also now believed to have engaged Visionox to supply its groundbreaking display technology. As that panel specialist has asserted its relevant InV See product is mass-production ready, this may be plausible. However, the A20 5G also does not have a concrete launch date at present.
