ZTE Corporation has unveiled a new 5G smartphone that was built with an eye towards video production. To that end, the ZTE Axon 11 5G is able to record 4K videos at 60fps, and comes with an AI quad shooting setup that combines a 64MP main camera with a 120-degree 8MP wide angle camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a professional depth of field camera.
Both the main camera and the wide-angle camera provide video stabilization to make sure that any recordings are as steady as possible. The phone itself comes with a full editing software suite, while its 5G capabilities allow users to upload 4K videos without the need for any compression.
“HD videos are certain to be one of the key application scenarios in the 5G era,” said ZTE SVP and Mobile Device Division President Xu Feng. “In the future, we will make great efforts in communications and video algorithm, aiming to provide consumers with competitive 5G terminal products.”
The ZTE Axon 11 5G leverages Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G mobile platform, and comes with a 6.47-inch curved waterdrop display. It is 7.9mm thick, and weighs in at a mere 168g, a figure that makes it one of the lightest smartphones currently on the market. It also features a Z-Booster 2.0 optimization engine, and can switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and cellular environments. Doing so will allow users to make the most of China’s robust 5G infrastructure.
For security, the Axon 11 includes an in-display fingerprint sensor that will enable biometric authentication. It arrives in the wake of the Axon 10 Pro, which became the first ZTE phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor when it debuted in August.
The new phone is available for pre-order in China as of March 23, with a starting price tag of ¥2,698 (approximately $380 USD). It’s not yet clear if and when the phone will arrive in other markets.
