ZTE Blade 20 Pro 5G is official in China: it is basically a Blade 20 5G with a better SoC and a slightly more advanced camera compartment. In a nutshell: instead of the MediaTek Dimensity 720 we find a Snapdragon 765 from Qualcomm. Both chips are equipped with 5G modems and manufactured with 7 nanometer manufacturing process, but S765 is equipped with 8 custom Kryo 475 cores with maximum clocked 2.3 GHz and Adreno 620 GPU, while M720 has two Cortex-A76 cores @ 2 GHz and six low-power A55, again with a frequency of 2 GHz. The GPU is an Arm Mali-G57 MC3.
The other important novelty, we said, is the photographic sector: the front camera goes from 8 to 20 MP, while the rear module goes from 3 to 4 units. The main one is from 64 MP, the other two should remain unchanged (8 MP wide angle and 2 MP depth) and a macro lens accompanied by a 2 MP sensor should be added. The rest remains essentially unchanged: 4,000 mAh battery, 6 + 128 GB and 6.52 “display with HD 720p resolution. We currently have no details on prices and availability.
In the same event, ZTE also briefly mentioned a new variant of Axon 20 5G, the first smartphone with a front camera hidden under the display. It will be called “Extreme Edition”, but the only concrete information we have is that it will have an orange back cover tending to yellow. The regular version of the device features a Snapdragon 765G chip; maybe the Extreme will rely on a top of the range chip? A Snapdragon 865 Plus, for example? For the moment, only guesses remain
