The device parades a 6.39-inch QHD+ OLED DCI-P3 HDR display with 86.90 screen-to-body ratio with a display notch up front(not the water-drop type) and a tiny chin at the bottom of the display. The major selling points of the device, however, isn’t the display notch, but unarguably the under-display fingerprint sensor for unlocking the smartphone, as well as its triple rear Matrix camera system with OIS.
Speaking of the triple rear Matrix camera system, the device parades a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera with support for autofocus (laser focus, phase focus, contrast focus), and AIS (Huawei AI Image Stabilisation). It gets a 24-megapixel front-facing shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 3D depth-sensing, a 4200mAh battery with support for Huawei SuperCharge and Huawei Wireless Quick Charge.
