  • 13mp colour rear camera, with f/1.85 lens
  • 13mp black and white rear camera

There's also an optional 360 camera with dual 12mp f/1.8 cameras, and 4 microphones for directional sound recording. All of the cameras are capable of recording 4K video, and by using two cameras on the rear the camera is optimized for improved low-light performance. The camera also offers a true monochrome mode.

On the back of the smartphone is a fingerprint sensor, plus magnetic connections for accessories.
