Watch How ZTE Axon 20 5G’ First-Ever Under Display Selfie Camera Works

It’s a week of firsts. On one hand, we’ve witnessed the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 phone debut in China , on the other hand, we had a peek at the first under-display selfie camera thanks to a ZTE Axon 20 5G teardown.

Although it has been released for a couple of months now, the mystery behind the selfie camera mechanism has remained. No one knew exactly how ZTE managed to integrate a front snapper, without having to resort to a hole on the display.

Thanks to Zac’s fascinating video, though, we have an idea of the engineering under the hood:

Turns out, ZTE stacked two screens on top of one another, the top one being low-res and allowing the camera to behave as it’s supposed to from underneath it.

It’s a nifty trick and one that allowed ZTE to make a breakthrough in the way selfie cameras are integrated into the design of the phone. Although the 32MP shooter performance isn’t mind-blowing, the way it remains discreetly out of sight is something we can appreciate.
