An old-new flagship device was also on display at the ZTE stand, namely the Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition. It debuted in China on November 30 last year as a limited edition of the barely one-year-old Axon 40 Ultra. It has 18 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 system chip, 1 TB of internal storage, all packed in a ceramic housing.
When using the phone, it doesn’t even appear where the front camera is. [+]
The back panel is not so interesting apart from the fact that the cameras protruding from the plane are made in a more solid form compared to the normal Axon 40 Ultra, the camera island is curved. At the same time, the disadvantage of the dark-colored ceramic housing is that as soon as a person touches the device, it will collect all existing fingerprints and smudges.
The downside of the glossy black back. [+]
The front camera is more interesting and less spectacular, as the 16 megapixel sensor was hidden under the special sub-pixel display, and the sensor is not noticeable at all in normal usage situations. Through the 10-bit 6.8-inch AMOLED panel, you can only see the front camera if the light falls on the phone at the right angle, and for this you have to hold the device case in a way that no one probably ever holds during normal phone use.
At the same time, it was also noticeable on the phone displayed on the brightly lit stand that the third generation technology (UDC Pro) is not completely perfect yet. The light coming through the pixels of the display can still be refracted by the time it reaches the sensor. Of course, the exhibition stand is an environment illuminated with artificial lights, so far we do not know how the mobile behaves in everyday situations, your predecessor was not yet at the height of the situation. Also, the truth is that light refraction is not visible from all angles using the front camera of the Axon 40 Ultra, so for those who do not want a phone with a notch or hole-punch display, do not use the front camera much, but are looking for a high-end device, the Axon 40 Ultra (or probably its soon-to-be successor) may even be an option to consider.
