This is definitely going to disappoint price-conscious smartphone users in India who are fond of expanding internal memory of the device to store gigabytes of media files and apps on their handsets. In the camera department, we have a 25MP selfie camera which is supported by a 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera. The device runs on Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6.0 on the top of it. For capturing depth information in portrait shots, it has a 5MP secondary rear camera. If you're anxious about how long the pop up camera can last, the company claims that the camera can be popped up 200000 times and comes with sapphire lenses to ensure that it can't easily be scratched.
