The phone also features a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 12MP sensor having f/1.5-2.4 aperture, 20MP sensor having f/2.6 aperture, and lastly, a TOF 3D stereo camera. the variable aperture in the primary camera automatically widens the lens during low light conditions to ensure that more light enters into the lens. There is a 25MP f/2.0 aperture AI Beauty Camera.
This phone also employs an in-display fingerprint sensor along with face unlock. This dual-SIM phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.2.
