For photos, premium mobile phones guarantee a set of three cameras with an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 5 MP macro. There is a slight difference between the main sensors of the versions: the standard uses 48 MP and the Pro has a 64 MP solution. The selfie tool is 20 MP and sits in a hole in the top corner of the screen.
