    Can we see some new camera samples?

      The update has actually been out for a while already via OTA. The update which greatly improved the camera quality was the March 2nd one. The March 4th update has been release one day later. Here are some samples for you: https://goo.gl/photos/YfcN6s84mLv5qQp99

        Not sure how it looked previously, but it seems not coping well with bad light. The pic with flower vase shows algorithm hiding low light originating noise is way over agressive. Looks bad.

          It still needs optimization. But before it wasn’t even capable of doing a single sharp picture.

      Hmm indoor pictures certainly look better now but I’m not convinced. This phone is going really cheap now (£150) and I need an upgrade from my Lenovo K3 Note.

    Is there actually a consumer anywhere in the world that already has this phone? All videos on youtube are from companies and folks who get phones for reviewing purposes. Buddy of mine has been waiting for his for over two months. It’s postponed again he said, Somewhere late april they told him.
