While we'd already caught wind of such a device, ZTE has now officially launched the world's first mass-produced phone to feature an under-display camera, and it's called the ZTE Axon 20 5G.

Those familiar with the technology will know that we've already seen concept devices sporting this tech from the likes of Oppo and Xiaomi, but the ZTE Axon 20 5G is the first device with the feature that consumers can actually buy.

In fact we've already tested the phone out, so you can read our ZTE Axon 20 5G review to find out what we think - or read on for the core details and specs.

When and where is the ZTE Axon 20 5G available?

ZTE officially released the Axon 20 5G on 1 September, however, that was only in China.

Fortunately it has since launched the phone globally (except the US and Canada).

How much does the Axon 20 cost?

The ZTE Axon 20 5G is unexpectedly affordable, costing just £419/$449 - making it a mid-range phone rather than a premium flagship.

What features does the ZTE Axon 20 offer?

The under-display camera is the main selling point of the phone, but as its name points out, 5G is also on the table, along with a few other goodies.
