When folded, you’ll see a 6.2-inch HD + dynamic AMOLED display, which also supports a 120Hz refresh rate.

This smartphone comes with a 4 megapixel selfie camera under the display, thus, the smartphone gets a truly bezel less design.

Its cover camera (secondary camera) is rated at 10 megapixels but it is not pulled into the screen.


Like the Galaxy S21 phones it has triple rear cameras set in a vertical design. This system includes the main camera, ultra-white lens and telephoto lens: all are 12-megapixel cameras.
