The Device is richly blessed with a 16mp front Facing AI camera which automatically adjust it self according to the environment, in Milliseconds. It also has the Bokeh mode which blurs out the background.
A 12mp rear camera is also integrated with AI.. and I think this is the selling point of this phone. The Camera can identify what ever you point to as far as it is recognized, I tried this with the Sony Logo and Toyota Logo and it worked Perfectly well. It can also scan text for translatio.n. Google has gotten Android one to the Next level. But you have to update your device before you can get the Google lens features.
Face unlock is not available on this device, it will probably come along with newer versions and older device could receive it through an OTA update.
The device comes with 3gb of Ram and 32gb inbuilt storage, you will get 22.4gb free on your first boot. It’s truely a device for heavy users, the Pro version has the 4gb ram and 64gb inbuilt. It’s up to you if you want to wait for the Release of The Pro.
