We previously reported to you that ZTE, Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo plan to launch phones with under-display cameras in the second half of the year, but with the Nubia Z30 render leaks revealing an under-display front camera on the device, there's a new name being added to that list.
Nubia once ran a poll among their fans on their Weibo page asking what feature they thought would be the most appreciated one of the upcoming Z-series flagship and with "Appearance" wining the poll, just edging "Photography" out of the top spot, it may or may not be a coincidence that both features are now being combined on the Nubia Z30.
The leaks show the render of the Nubia Z30 with the absence of a visible front camera which gave life to the idea of the device featuring an under-display selfie camera. Nubia won't be the first manufacturer to release a device with the front camera under the display as ZTE were the first to do so last year when they released the Axon 20 series.
Hopefully, the issues the ZTE Axon 20 series had with the technology such as the area of the screen that hid the camera being visible and the selfies taken by the camera lacking sharpness would have been accounted for and fixed by the time the Nubia Z30 is released to the public.
According to renders that showed the back view, the device is expected to come with a quad-camera setup with 16 mm focal length for the ultra-wide camera and 135 mm focal length for the telephoto (5x magnification over the main camera) which is presumably a periscope, even though it wasn't expressly drawn as such in the render.
The Nubia Z30 has previously been reported to be powered by the new Snapdragon 888 chipset shortly after the chipset itself was announced, but that was months ago. There is no information now as to when the device would be released.
