Also, there is a vertical dual camera setup which could include two 16MP sensors with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and f/1.6 aperture size. Below the dual cameras is the fingerprint scanner, which also doubles as the phone’s home button. There will also be an 8-megapixel sensor front camera. It will come with 3,000mAh battery, Android Oreo running out-of-the-box, and include DTX-X powered speakers. Other features also include IP68 water and dust resistance with a military standard rating for durability, camera AI, digital assistant and wireless charging.
It’s believed that this handset is internally being called as “Judy”, according to popular leaker Evan Blass and the official launch is likely to happen in June.
