12MP 26mm Wide Dual Pixel camera
12MP 65mm Telephoto lens
12MP 13mm Ultrawide
TOF 3D LiDar scanner
The amazing camera has a fourth sensor which is a LiDAR scanner to help the phone scan the room and work out what it's looking at. Night Mode works across all of the lenses so you get truly impressive low-light photos. The wide camera has improved night performance and the LiDAR sensor works to add even more detail. If you love snapping selfies on a night out, the front camera gets Night Mode and a Retina Flash for excellent quality shots. The Retina Flash works by lighting up the screen to illuminate your face and slowly dims as you snap the photo.

The superb processor and intelligent power management will handle all the background stuff and make sure you have the power you need to get through the day. The phone doesn't come with a wireless charging pad, so you will need to buy that separately.
