The 25MP front camera is HDR capable and also features the same AI Beautification Technology used in the F5. That means it scans numerous points on your face to determine how you should be “beautified”. You can also use it to unlock the phone with facial recognition. The 16MP rear camera is also capable AI-capable, can detect and adapt to up to 16 scenes, and also features Portrait Mode.

Now, there’s Vivid Mode, which should make colors look more saturated, if that’s what you prefer. It also features AR Stickers, which you know.. puts those dog and cat ears or whiskers and the like on your face.
