The ZTE Axon 30 Ultimate Edition goes official with improved display and under-display camera solutionZTE has unveiled the Axon 30 Ultimate Edition, which is also listed as ZTE Axon 30s on the brand's Chinese website. This device is almost identical to the ZTE Axon 30 5G but there are some noteworthy differences. For starters, the model offers three different colors and two rear-shell finishes. The Light Curry and Ink Shadow variants feature a leather-covered rear shell. The leather is durable and wear-resistant while offering a soft touch. The other black variant has a glass-covered back. A second noteworthy difference is the structure of the display. While the Axon 30 5G has a 10-layered display, the Azon 30 Ultimate Edition uses a 7-layered display. The layers are as follows from top to bottom - cover glass, polarizer, encapsulated glass, transparent cathode, special OLED, transparent array, substrate glass. In addition, the under-display camera area uses a multi-drive ACE (Array Circuit Enhanced) arrangement, which compared with the previous generation design is 50% more efficient and makes the transition between the region covering the camera and the regular display area more natural.

Further, ZTE does not mention HDR10+ certification but does stress three certifications for low blue light solutions - by TUV Rheinland, SGS, and US UL. Finally, the excellent display performance is aided by the UDC Pro chip which adds intelligent pixel enhancement, display optimization, and the Proactive and Transparent Algorithm 2.0 for intelligent defogging, anti-glare, automatic adjustment of the dynamic range, etc. As long as it concerns the other display properties, there are no changes there. The unit uses a 6.92-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, 10-bit color bit depth, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, DC dimming.

The ZTE Axon 30 Ultimate Edition has the same 4200 mAh battery with 55W fast charging and the same Snapdragon 870 chipset as the Axon 30 5G. However, there's only one RAM+storage variant - 8GB+512GB. The storage can be expanded by up to 1TB. The camera department remains unchanged and features a 64MP Sony IMX682 main shooter with an f/1.6 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide unit with a 120-degree FoV, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth-sensing lens. The under-display front camera is also the same 16MP unit used on the Axon 30 5G. The Ultimate Editions runs on MyOS 11 based on Android 11 and supports Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6, 5G, NFC. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 port. The model is priced at CNY 3498.
