The key highlight, however, is the quad camera setup at the rear, featuring a 64MP primary sensor with 4-in-1 Super Pixel technology for impressive low-light performance. In addition to the 64MP sensor, you get an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. Some of the other key features of the smartphone include a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display, 20MP front camera, 4,500mAh battery with 18W fast charging, and an IR blaster.
