ZTE A20 5G may be the first phone with an in-screen camera. The arrival of a phone with camera under the screen was a matter of time. The technology has been around for some years, but it had to be polished to be able to offer good image quality with the front camera. Now, ZTE wants to get ahead of everyone by launching the first mobile with a front camera under the screen.
From the Vivo Nex with a periscope front camera (in a pop-up module) and the iPhone X, the market has been moving towards the future of all-screen mobiles. The notch accompanied us for a year and a half, but little by little the size of the sensors and the front camera has been reduced to hide some under the panels and confine the front cameras to a hole in the screen.

Different brands such as Samsung, Huawei or Xiaomi have been experimenting with this technology to abandon any hole in the screen sooner rather than later and be able to opt for all-screen devices. They are two of the brands that are betting the most on devices with screens that occupy the largest possible percentage of the front, but Oppo has been the one that has shown the most progress to date.
ZTE might win the race to bring the in-screen camera first
However, a competitor has emerged in this new technology race. ZTE, a company that has not been doing too well in recent years, mainly due to the launch of futuristic devices or folding mobile phones with double screens, has revealed that they are ready to announce their first mobile with an under-screen camera.
The company will introdfuce a concept of Visionox, and it seems that the panel developers are ready to start producing screens capable of hiding a camera. There are no details about it and we are very interested to see how this technology works.
The president of ZTE, Ni Fei, is convinced that it is time to launch a mobile with this technology, but we have neither device characteristics nor name. And the only clue is that, the name of the phone will be ZTE A20 5G. This phone’s name is recently leaked in China under the codename ZTE A2121.
