Many Android brands work on this type of system, but the manufacturer was the first to have a model of this type ready, also managing to avoid the main problem with this type of camera, the poor quality of its photos.
How has the brand made this possible? The well-known YouTuber JerryRigEverything has subjected this ZTE Axon 20 5G to one of its well-known endurance tests, allowing it to we can know more about the under-screen camera system employed by the brand. There is a trick that makes it possible.
New ZTE Axon 20 5G: the first mobile with a camera under the screenThe ZTE Axon 20 5G has been officially presented and becomes the first mobile on the market to have an under-screen camera.
A double screen: the secret of the ZTE Axon 20 5G
As is already known, because many brands have had this problem in their tests, placing the camera under the screen causes the quality of the photos and videos obtained with that sensor to be of poorer quality. For brands it is a challenge to achieve that despite having this sensor under the panel, the photos are not worse.
In the JerryRigEverything video, you can see the system used in this ZTE Axon 20 5G. There is a double screen, so that the front camera is not hidden behind the main screen of the phone, but is hidden behind a small independent square screen. This screen has a lower resolution than the rest of the panel.
This system allows control the shutdown of that secondary screen, letting light pass to the sensor when using it. In addition, a lower resolution is mounted, with larger pixels and a different tint, which makes it different from the main screen of this phone. Although the photos that are taken with this front camera are not perfect, it allows a better quality than if you did not have this system.
This phone becomes the first on the market to have the camera under the screen, also using a double screen. Although ZTE is not the only one to bet on this system, as the Samsung patent showed yesterday, so we will surely see more models with this type of system.
