Together with the Axon 30 Ultra, ZTE also announced the Axon 30 and the Axon 30 Pro phones. ZTE didn’t really unveil the vanilla Axon 30 at the stage and only conveyed that the device holds an under-display camera.
The ZTE Axon 30 Pro is similar to the Ultra, but with a few minute differences. For instance, only the Axon 30 Ultra is the bearer of three 64MP cameras. The Pro model, on the other hand, gets two 64MP cameras – one main snapper and an ultrawide sensor followed by a 5MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor.
ZTE Axon 30 Pro also gets a smaller battery capacity – 4,200mAH and 55W charging, compared to 66W charging tech available with the Ultra model. Furthermore, the display of the ZTE Axon 30 Pro supports a 120Hz refresh rate, instead of 144Hz.
According to Gizmochina, ZTE President has confirmed the Axon 30 with the under-display camera is delayed due to the current global chip shortage among other issues. He did promise that the device will arrive soon.
