The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra is the company’s brand new flagship that will launch soon. The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra will become official on May 9, and it will launch with a bezel-less display and an under-display camera.

We’re talking about a China launch here, of course. The device will likely make its way to more markets after the fact, though. The design of this phone is quite interesting, for several reasons.

Some of you will remember that Ice Universe, a well-known tipster, teased a great-looking smartphone a couple of days ago. He said that this design will eclipse the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and every other phone that launched this year.

Well, it seems like he was talking about this device. He did mention that the device won’t include a display camera hole or anything of the sort, that it will have thin bezels, and that it will launch in May.


ZTE did share a partial image of the device, which you can check out below this paragraph. As you can see, the bezels are almost non-existent, while the display camera hole / notch are nowhere to be found. We don’t get to see the bottom of the phone, and if the bottom bezel is just as thin.

The device will obviously have a curved display. The company did not share an image of the back side of this phone, though. What did surface, however, is the real-life image of the device. You can check that image below this paragraph.

This image basically confirms that the render is accurate, and that the bezels will be quite thin. It also shows us the physical buttons on the right side. Those include the power/lock button, in addition to volume up and down keys.

A 120Hz display will be included, and the same goes for 65W charging

We don’t know much about this phone’s specs, but some info did surface. The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra is tipped to feature a 6.67-inch fullHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will likely have a really high touch sampling rate, and support for pixel-width modulation (PWM) dimming.

Android 12 will come pre-installed on the phone, while a 44-megapixel camera will sit under the display. A 64-megapixel main camera is tipped to be included on the back, in addition to an 8-megapixel unit, and a 5-megapixel camera.

In addition to all that, the rumors are saying the device will include up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. 65W fast charging will also be included.
