Smartphone manufacturers are trying all sorts of things in a race to build “full-screen” smartphones. This has involved notches, punch holes, pop-up mechanisms, and now sliders. Renders of an unannounced ZTE handset have surfaced online and it’s claimed that this device, the Axon S, will have a slider that moves horizontally to reveal the camera system.
The images show that the ZTE Axon S display is going to slide sideways to reveal the front facing cameras as well as the triple camera system at the back. This will allow the company to further reduce the bezels on this device and claim a bonkers screen-to-body-ratio for marketing purposes.
However, this is the first instance of a sideways slider being used to hold the cameras. Many of the solutions that we have seen so far involve vertical sliding mechanisms and the punch hole which every other manufacturer seems to be opting for this year.
The report mentions that the Axon S will have a triple rear camera with a 48 megapixel main sensor, a 19 megapixel secondary sensor with a third sensor that offers 5x optical zoom. At least one of the cameras is said to feature a f/1.7-2.4 variable aperture.
ZTE hasn’t acknowledged the existence of this device as yet so it’s unclear when we can expect it to arrive and for how much.
