At the back are triple rear-facing cameras, a 50MP primary camera with Sony IMX766 sensor, a 50MP secondary ultra-wide angle camera with Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. The 32MP selfie camera resides at the top-left side of the screen inside a punch hole, which has a Sony IMX615 sensor.
