Some smartphones can cause jaw drop. The new ZTE Axon 40 Ultra is certainly one of them. The device looks so amazing that it is hard to take your eyes off it. Especially since soon it will also be available in Poland!
Official presentation of the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra smartphone. Has a wow effect
The manufacturer itself informs that ZTE Axon 40 Ultra was designed for the spectacular. And it’s spectacular. Its front panel is almost completely filled with a screen, which also flows around the side edges. There are no cutouts or holes in the screen as the selfie camera and video call camera are placed behind/below (as someone prefers). It looks truly phenomenal.
This is another ZTE smartphone with an under-display camera. Recently, the Nubia REDMAGIC 7 Pro with a similar solution debuted in the market. The manufacturer informs that the area of the screen behind which the camera is located has 400 ppi. In addition, a number of innovative solutions have been used here, such as independent pixel driver technology (each pixel unit is controlled by a separate pixel system – this to ensure greater brightness).
The circuits are connected with transparent wires, which eliminates their aggregation at the edge of the screen in the area where the under-screen camera is located, thanks to which the displayed image is “even smoother”. In addition, the manufacturer has further improved the UDC Pro chip in the display, integrating the MRC algorithm update, intelligent pixel enhancement and intelligent optimization of display technology to create a more accurate and synchronized screen.
The on-screen camera has a resolution of 16 Mpix and pixels up to 2.24 µm (using pixel joining technology). Its work is facilitated by Selfie Algorithm 3.0, based on AI deep learning technology, which reduces noise and calibrates the image in real time under various lighting conditions – it can, for example, defog the image and reduce glare to increase its clarity and transparency. Additionally, users will benefit from the Smart Makeup feature.
The AMOLED screen of the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra smartphone has a diagonal of 6.8 inches and a resolution of Full HD + 2480 × 1116 pixels and 10-bit color depth and a peak brightness of 1500 nits, plus 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. The screen is also able to refresh the image at a rate of 120 Hz and track touch at a rate of 360 Hz. In addition, it has a function that reduces flicker in dark scenes (1440 Hz PWM).
However, not only the front of this smartphone is impressive, but also its the back, on which there are three cameras with a resolution of 64 Mpix each! In addition to the main one, the manufacturer placed a camera with an ultra-wide-angle lens (both with Sony IMX787 sensors) and a periscope construction.
The main camera has a focal length of 35mm and 7 lenses and an aperture of f / 1.6, which provides the background blur function at the hardware level. The camera with ultra wide angle lens has a focal length of 16mm and the function of focusing on an object at a distance of 4cm, i.e. also for macro shots. The telephoto lens has a focal length of 91mm and offers 5.7x optical zoom. The smartphone also has optical and electronic image stabilization and can record videos in 8K resolution.
Moreover, the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra specification also includes Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, LPDDR5 RAM bones, UFS 3.1 flash memory, nine-layer heat dissipation system with 36356mm cooling area2 with a steam chamber, dual stereo speakers, X-line vibration motor and 5000mAh battery with support for 65W charging.
ZTE Axon 40 Ultra will initially be available in China for 4998 yuan (equivalent to ~3300 zlotys) for the 8GB/256GB version and 5298 yuan (~3499 zlotys) for the 12GB/256GB variant. The smartphone will go on sale worldwide in June 2022 and it can also be ordered in Poland on ZTE’s official website.
