Fabulous aesthetics is one of the cool features of this smartphone. Scratch-resistant glass is laid on both sides of the phone to give lasting durability. The notch sits at the top with 12MP wide selfie camera and 3D ToF camera.

This notch camera comes with a wider lens that allows you to snap a wider group selfie. More so, the camera captures [email protected] videos, as well as 120fps slo-mo videos called “slofies”.

The 3D ToF camera does the facial recognition needed for the Face ID security on the smartphone. This Face ID recognises your face from farther areas which is a welcome development.
