Capture Your World with the New ZTE Axon 40 Ultra

For many, having a great camera is what sets the bar for how good a smartphone is. It isn’t the only thing that matters. The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra has gone above and beyond from a device you can fit into your pocket. It gives the world a rear camera that puts the kind of power contained only by the most advanced photographic technologies right in your hands.

The Axon 40 Ultra Camera 

The Axon 40 Ultra Camera uses smaller-sized sensors than actual cameras which results in shorter light to achieve high-quality images. This paired with the strong ability to manipulate images through shooting techniques and editing, make this one of the most powerful cameras ever seen on a smartphone. 

The Customized Adaptive Shutter Algorithm innovates mobile photography. It comes with features such as AI motion detection and phone jitter detection, helping users correct instability. Other features such as adaptive shutter exposure, RAW multi-frame fusion, AI denoising and defuzzification, and sharpen imaging allow users  to take high-resolution photos with great detail and clarity and no compromise on the quality achieved through mobile photography.

The Axon 40 Ultra uses three lenses to capture every moment no matter the subject, angle, or environment. With a 16mm wide-angle lens, a 35mm primary portrait lens, and a 91mm periscope lens, users have the option to select and test which focus distance best recreates the world they want to see. The Preset Focus setting allows users to shoot without manually shift the focus.

The essence of portrait photography is to record the emotion or body movements of a subject by emphasizing particular features or characteristics such as the face, eyes, expressions, body language, etc.

Tip: Subjects are best captured standing 1.5 meters away from them, and shooting the upper body from the waist to the head.

CMOS Sensor

The CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor enables a faster reading of pixels. Because the CMOS sensor in the Axon 40 Ultra is smaller than the CMOS sensors in cameras, the physical amount of light is shorter thus allowing the phone to use algorithms to make photos look better. For this reason, even in extremely dark environments, users of the ZTE smartphone can still produce high-quality images.

Shooting Modes

The smartphone comes with several shooting modes for users to explore, including Night Mode, which allows users to experiment with night photography as the camera keeps the color styles similar to those achieved in the daytime. The cameras maintain a high resolution, have high purity, and have good noise control, producing pleasant images. 

The Smart Moon Mode makes use of the triple camera system as well as fusion calculations to magnify the moon to the right position to match the real-life sight of it as perfectly and beautifully as possible.

The Star Photography algorithm enhances the way the stars appear, allows for constellation connections, and enables starbursts - giving you the power to fully grasp the etherealness of the night sky illuminated by natural light

And the Portrait Image quality generates true skin tones and natural colors such as the sky, and other natural elements.

The portrait filters take the photo abilities from advanced to classic when filters such as the Film filter and Bresson filter are applied, giving the illusion of an actual film camera.

Whether you are a seasoned creative who curates images for blogs, portfolios, social media, or simply someone who takes out their phone during special occasions for those one-chance-only moments, the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra camera will carry your creative abilities right to the next level. The wide range of editing tools provides users with the option to alter images into something that doesn’t falsify reality but enhances it.

Realize the future and endless possibilities of mobile photography with the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra.
