Ultra light-sensitive camera

77% increase in image sensor size, better image quality

Light plays a huge role in photography. With larger image sensor, more light enters, and you get a better image quality. We have specially picked Sony IM378 1/2.3" image sensor, which is by far the largest camera image sensor in the market for our phone.
