In particular, it has a 24MP f/1.7 primary shooter paired with an 8MP f/2.4 120-degree wide-angle lens and a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor. The primary sensor is to capture the details and for better lowlight performance. Obviously, the secondary camera is for the wide-angle mode and third camera is for the Live Focus bokeh effect.

As expected, it has the intelligent Scene Optimizer which works like the AI scene detection of other phone brands.

For selfies, it has a 24MP shooter with pixel binning tech which combines four pixel into 1 pixel for lowlight shots. It also has an adjustable LED flash, Selfie Focus, Pro Lighting Mode, and AR emoji.
