ZTE introduces 2nd-gen in-display camera tech, under-display 3D face unlock solution

24 February 2021 0

ZTE has introduced its second-gen in-display camera tech at the ongoing MWC Shanghai. Before you learn about it further, you should know that the first tech made its debut via the Axon 20 5G but it fell short of becoming a major hit. Now, the company is ready with its second-gen in-display tech with necessary improvements.

According to a post on Weibo (via Android Authority), the upgraded solution brings significant improvements to the pixel density of the screen above the front-facing camera. It goes from 200PPI to 400PPI. ZTE also made claims that the new second-gen solution offers a more consistent experience with the rest of the display. Furthermore, the screen refresh rate has been increased from 90Hz to 120Hz for smoother navigation as well.

Unfortunately, ZTE didn’t go into details nor did it explain anything about the under-screen camera used. The post just adds that the company has managed to reduce the hazy effect seen on the screen above the selfie camera on the Axon 20 5G. Sadly, ZTE’s first attempt on the under-screen camera tech didn’t go well as the tech had given an underwhelming performance.

Together with this, ZTE also showcased the world’s first under-screen 3D structured light scanner. ZTE believes the tech will offer 3D face unlock on devices that could prove to be helpful in 3D modeling, augmented reality, and payment applications in the future.

We expect to hear more about the new under-screen camera tech in the coming days as ZTE makes more progress and is ready to share the details with all of us.
