On the back of the smartphone is a camera unit with autofocus and a quad-core flash – a 50 MP main lens with f / 1.6 aperture, 2 MP as a depth sensor and an additional module for background blurring, portrait photography and using AI.

Speaking of the latter, the built-in artificial intelligence can significantly improve the quality of photos, and the Super Night mode allows you to take photos in the dark. Images in a static position look acceptable, but don’t expect the capabilities of professional devices.

For safe use of the smartphone, we have put a silicone case from the delivery set on it. It fits snugly on the device, covering all edges, but leaving a small part of the back (along with the camera module) exposed. Do not scratch the table, but it is better not to touch it with dirty hands.

Below are examples of “From the Window” photos at different times of the day:
