ZTE Axon 20 with World’s First In-Display Camera Arriving in the Philippines!


Announced back in September, ZTE Axon 20 — the world’s first in-display camera phone — is bound for global release. Apparently, the company is now accepting reservations as early as today to hit its December 21 shipping date. Although limited, the Philippines is included in the list of countries that will get the Axon 20. You can check the full list below:

  • United Kingdom
  • European Union
  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Thailand
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Ukraine
  • Saudi Arabia
  • South Africa

The Axon 20 will go head-to-head with the likes of OnePlus Nord, Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro, and the recently released Realme X50 Pro. But much like the Nord, the Axon 20 features Snapdragon 765G and not the flagship 865. It’s paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB expandable storage. The fullscreen FHD+ OLED not only offers 1 billion colors but also a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate as well. 

For the cameras, there’s a quad-camera setup on the back, with a 64MP sensor as the main shooter. Interestingly, it can shoot up to [email protected] video as well as 10-bit. Upfront, which is under the display, is a 32MP selfie camera. 

In China, ZTE Axon 20 5G went on sale starting at CNY 2198 (~Php16,000) for the 6GB/128GB. The 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB models were priced at CNY 2498(~Php18,300) and CNY 2798(~Php20,500), respectively.
