A dual camera setup sits at the back if this device which is a combination of a main 13MP shooter with an f/2.0 aperture and a secondary 2MP depth sensor camera for portrait mode shots. It also has an LED flash for low light shots. At the front is a single 8MP selfie camera tucked carefully in the water drop notch which handles selfies.
