This includes Nightscape 2.0 which captures even the darkest environments in stunning detail, ICE 2.0 which comes with an ultra-fast shutter speed, and Super HDR which offers powerful photo-editing options. Finally, the 6.7-inch 120 Hz FHD+ Fluid Display makes watching videos or playing games on the device an immersive experience with its HDR10+ and 10-bit colour for crisp visuals and colour accuracy.
