The front selfie camera is a 12MP f/2.4 sensor.
The battery capacity is rated at 4,600 mAh, which is the same as the one in the Magic 4 Pro. It supports 100W fast wired charging, but it only supports 50W fast wireless charging, whereas the Magic 4 Pro supports industry-leading 100W wireless charging.
