The front camera is 13 megapixel, but notIt is possible that this is an interpolated value, since in some places the mention of 8 MP slips. The main dual with a leading 16-megapixel module (optional 2 MP) and a phase autofocus system.

There are two colors, black and gradient, with a transition from a filet to a green a la Chinese down jackets of the early 90s of the last century.
