More importantly, the ZTE A20 Ultra uses the industry’s cutting-edge PDS outer surface antenna technology. Through a series of high-precision and difficult processes such as film disassembly, printing, and baking, the antenna is arranged on the outer middle frame of the phone. The antenna headroom has doubled. It keeps the antenna away from your smartphone motherboard and internal components to reduce the impact of internal metal components on the antenna.


Compared with the commonly used FPC antenna technology, the antenna performance has got an improvement of 50% under the same cell phone volume.

In terms of cameras, there is a 32MP front camera as well as a 64MP main camera + 8MP super wide-angle + 2MP macro + 2MP depth of field sensors combination on the back. ZTE says it used a mix of five technologies to get the camera to work. To balance the performance of the display and the front camera, ZTE added a special material using “organic and inorganic film,” which improves light input for the lens.
