Months after the official launch of the Axon 30 series, ZTE has finally unveiled the regular Axon 30. So, let’s check out the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of ZTE Axon 30 5G in Nepal.
ZTE Axon 30 5G Overview
Axon 30 5G is a follow-up to last year’s Axon 20 5G, which is the world’s first commercial phone with an under-display fingerprint scanner. Its successor builds on the first-gen tech, bringing further improvement.
Under-display Selfie Camera
Let’s start with the main highlight of ZTE Axon 30 – the under-display selfie camera. The first-gen product suffered from low resolution and transmittance, and ZTE has tried to fix that here.
First, the screen above the camera now has a high pixel density of 400 PPI.
It is composed of 7 different layers of highly transparent material. In addition, ZTE has included an independent display chip and 3 processing technologies for display enhancement.
The 16MP under-display selfie camera uses 4-in-1 pixel binning to form a 2.24μm pixel.
Display and Design
Moving on, Axon 30 inherits the already impressive display specs from its successor. You get the same 6.92-inch 10-bit AMOLED screen with 100% DCI P3 coverage and a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. ZTE has integrated faster refresh and touch sampling rates of 120Hz and 360Hz, respectively.
Axon 30 is the first phone to have eye-protection certification from TUV, SGS, and UL. There is also a DC Dimming feature to reduce screen flickering in low brightness.
The glass back at the back is gone and is replaced with a 3D polymer shell. It has a nano-level glow texture overlay on top.
Performance and Memory
Running the show underneath is Snapdragon 870 SoC. While it is not the best chipset out here, it is still a healthy upgrade from last year’s Snapdragon 765G.
The phone comes with up to 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In addition, the virtual RAM feature lets users use 5GB of internal storage like RAM.
At the back, you have a quad-camera setup led by the 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 5MP depth sensor, and a depth sensor. While there are not many changes in the camera specs, the camera module has certainly gone through a bold makeover.
Rest of the Specs
Fueling the phone is a 4200mAh battery with support for 55W fast charging. It ships with ZTE’s MyOS 11 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box.
