With all the hype surrounding underscreen cameras, ZTE last year launched the first commercially available smartphone with the new technology on its Axon 20 5G. Now, ZTE is giving us another look at its second-generation attempt at MWC Shanghai. The brand’s official Weibo account shared two posts detailing the display of what we assume to be the Axon 30 Pro.
ZTE prototype device with second generation UD camera
According to the article, the pixel density above the UD camera has been increased twice and now reaches 400ppi, resulting in a more consistent appearance of the panel. Additionally, the entire panel now supports a refresh rate of 120Hz, compared to 90Hz on the Axon 20. The accompanying photo shows a ZTE prototype with its second-generation UD camera although we couldn’t not exactly distinguish the area above the sensor as the quality of the image itself is not that great.

In a separate article, we get a look at another new feature coming to the Axon 30 Pro – the first under-display 3D structured light technology. This will allow 3D scanning of faces and objects to unlock the phone and verify payments. It can also be used for AR and 3D modeling applications. ZTE claims the biometric security of its new sensor is far superior to any regular camera that only scans 2D images.
Visionox was tasked with supplying the Axon 20 5G display panel last year and we expect ZTE to rely on the manufacturer again for its second generation UD camera. We previously saw a photo sample of ZTE’s new UD sensor that showed big quality improvements and smoother results over the exiting shooter from the Axon 20.
