ZTE will launch the Axon 40 series on Monday, and we know it will include at least three phones: the Axon 40, Axon 40 Pro, and Axon 40 Ultra. The vanilla will offer a full-screen experience owing to third-generation technology for an under-display front-facing camera, the Ultra will have three 64 MP shooters on the back, and we now have a spicy camera-related teaser about the Pro as well – it will have a 100 MP shooter.
The company also announced that the series will include a dedicated security chip, which will raise hardware protection to a new level.
The 100 MP assertion indicates that ZTE will use the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor in the Axon 40 Pro. The Korean company is now the only one capable of producing mobile picture platforms with such high resolution, and the HM2 is the most recent edition.
The sensor is 1/1.33″ in size and enables PDAF, Laser AF, and OIS; we anticipate that all of this technology will be included in the Axon 40 Pro. The image also revealed 6 layers in front of the real sensors, indicating that it will be a true 6P lens with an f/1.8 aperture.
ZTE will also be introducing a security chip for the first time. While we don’t know much about its features, we can expect it to contain sensitive data such as fingerprint scanners, passwords, and credit card information so it doesn’t sit in storage where it may be subject to assaults.
All specifics will be disclosed in a week, although we anticipate ZTE to tease additional features in the days preceding the event.
