The ZTE unveiled the Axon 20 5G last year, where one of its main highlights was the use of a hidden camera in the front screen. As such, it was the first smartphone sold on a global scale to feature such technology. Now, the successor line, called ZTE Axon 30, should arrive again with this technology, and the Axon 30 Ultra should even have a focus on photography. The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra is the new flagship of the Chinese brand, a powerful phone that stands out for having triple 64MP sensors on its back and Snapdragon 888 SoC with 12 GB of RAM.
The manufacturer confirmed that the most expensive model should arrive with a mode called Super Moon Ultra; with a focus on astrophotography, to capture the stars and the moon at night. ZTE has published some things showing how the device behaves in the recording of images, more specifically using the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G.

Also, in videos published by the brand, we see several features of the device. For example, it will, in fact, have three 64 MP cameras, one of which is an f / 1.6 aperture main; an ultra-wide-angle secondary, and a deep tertiary. There is also a fourth 8 MP telephoto camera for zoom; all within a rectangle in the upper left rear corner of the model.
This Trinity camera system is one of its standout features. “Computational photography is the future in the image of the development of smartphones. Compared to real professional photographic equipment, the greatest capability of smartphones is computing power; whether in Edge technology or in the cloud through the third-generation imaging algorithm pioneered by ZTE, ”says Ni Fei, President. from ZTE Devices.
“In the future,” he adds, “through this built-in capability; with a more powerful artificial intelligence algorithm and greater capabilities in the cloud; channel, and endpoints; there will be an opportunity to create a quality higher than that of lens reflex cameras. unique in mobile photography through computational photography methods ”. Imaging features included in the Axon 30 Ultra include; “take photos first, zoom later” and multi-camera and 8K ultra HD video recordings.
This ZTE Axon 30 Ultra bets on a 6.67-inch OLED screen; with a hole in the upper central part where we have its 16 Mpx camera for selfies. This panel takes full advantage of the front and has a Full HD + resolution; in addition to a 144 Hz refresh rate, which makes it an ideal option when playing games.
Snapdragon 888 is the processor used in this model, Qualcomm’s most powerful chip so far. A processor that gives you great performance, also when playing games. Along with this processor, we have two combinations of RAM and storage and a large battery with a 4,600 mAh capacity.
