ZTE has globally released the Axon 40 Ultra after first launching the smartphone in China this past May.

The Axon 40 Ultra features a 16-megapixel under-display camera in its 6.8-inch FHD+ 120HZ OLED curved panel.

Additionally, the smartphone offers two different variants and comes with either 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5RAM and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, alongside Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip.  In addition, the smartphone features a 5,000mAh battery and 65W wired charging support, though wireless charging is not available.

As for its cameras, the Axon 40 Ultra packs a triple camera setup with a 64-megapixel main shooter, a 64-megapixel ultrawide camera and a 64-megapixel periscope shooter with 3.5x optical zoom.

The camera app is also getting a bump and now features simultaneous shooting from all three rear sensors, a macro mode via the ultrawide sensor and 8K video.

Other features offered include a “nine-layer heat dissipation system,” Bluetooth 5.2, dual stereo speakers, NFC, three microphones, Wi-Fi 6E and ZTE’s MyOS Android skin.

The smartphone is pretty pricey, coming in at $799 USD (approximately $1,000 CAD). That said, there is a pre-order discount from June 8th that offers $50 off the sale price if you pay $1.99 USD (approximately $2.51 CAD).
