Monster camera configuration?

The first with 3x 64MP cameras!

At the back, the handset uses a 3D curved back design with a matte-like finish. What stands out is the huge camera island housing its four cameras. Not 1, not 2, but 3 of those cameras are 64MP sensors. This is the first time that a mobile maker was able to put 3 large camera sensors instead of the usual one big camera and lesser supplementary cameras.

The first 64MP unit is a Sony IMX686 sensor with f/1.6 aperture, OIS, and 8K video recording capability. The second 64MP module has an f/1.9 aperture at 35mm. The third 64MP is a 13mm 120-degree ultra-wide-angle shooter.

The fourth camera is an 8MP 123mm 5x periscope zoom camera with its own OIS to improve stabilization when zooming. The second 64MP shooter with around 1.5x magnification will help fill the gap between the main camera and the periscope camera. If this really works, clever.

In front, it uses a 3D curved 6.67-inch OLED panel with 90Hz, 120Hz, and 144Hz refresh rate with 300Hz touch sampling rate. This screen has FHD+ resolution, HDR10+, and DCI-P3 100 percent colors, and Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 protection. But unlike the Axon 20 5G, it won't come with an under-display selfie camera. Instead, you will get a 16MP camera for selfies.

Under the hood, it runs with Qualcomm's 2.84GHz 5nm Snapdragon 888 octa-core processor with Adreno 660 GPU, 8GB/12GB/16GB LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB/1GB UFS 3.1 storage, and a 4,600mAh battery with USB-C 66W fast charging. There's no wireless charging though.

The device has WiFi 6E, 5G, SA/NSA, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and Android 11 OS with MyOS 11 skin.

This will be available in Black, White, and Mint colors as well as a Tan Vegan Leather edition.

There's no word if it'll reach other parts of the world though.
