ZTE has announced a date for the Axon 30 product event. The show will unveil the OEM's second-gen under-display camera phone during this show. It is now slated to arrive with a 6.92-inch edge-to-edge FHD+ AMOLED display, a high-end Qualcomm processor and an updated design.

ZTE will remain ahead of the curve in terms of smartphone screen tech with its official announcement that the Axon 30 5G will launch a week from today (July 20, 2021). It will be the OEM's second phone with the under-display camera (UDC) technology that may end up replacing the punch-hole selfie camera over the next few years.

This advancement creates a much more convincing edge-to-edge effect, although it has been seen to suffer in some areas, particularly display refresh rate across the entire panel and actual front-facing camera quality, as demonstrated in the Axon 20 5G itself.

However, ZTE claims that it has worked on these issues in its successor. The upcoming 30 has reportedly visited the TENAA regulator ahead of its launch, revealing dimensions for its cutting-edge display. It is also now slated to be driven by a chipset with a 3.2GHz clock speed, and is thus now thought to be the Snapdragon 870, paired with up to 12GB of RAM.

The Axon 30 may also stay on thanks to a 4,100mAh battery. ZTE has already previewed the phone's design ahead of its launch, revealing that it has ditched the patent Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra-mimicking nature of its current 2021 flagships in favor of a rear panel suspiciously like that displayed in leaks associated with the Huawei P50.

ZTE is (again) likely to get there first with the resulting binocular camera hump, said to house 64MP+8MP+5MP+2MP shooters on the Axon 30 5G's debut.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
