Rumors have it that the handset will be equipped with f/1.85 aperture 16-megapixel + f/1.85 aperture 5-megapixel dual camera setup. For snapping selfies, it will be featuring a 25-megapixel front camera. Since it is a selfie expert series phone by OPPO, it will be coming with various AI features for capturing selfie shots.
