On the front, you will have a single 5 MP camera that will have the same sensor as the one on the secondary camera at the back. There is no information on the release date of the smartphone, but the report says that the firmware files explicitly mention the Chinese and Indian markets are the release regions. On the software front, the device will be shipped with Android 8.1 Oreo and MIUI 9.5. It will come with a special feature of electronic image stabilization, portrait mode and face unlock features.
