It will sport a dual camera setup on the rear featuring 16MP + 20MP camera sensors with one wide-angle and one telephoto lens and a 16MP front selfie shooter. However, there have been reports that the front camera on the new device will face an upgrade and is going to be of 20MP resolution. It is also expected to come face unlock feature.
The company recently confirmed that the new device will come with an audio jack and also explained the benefits of having an audio jack. Another blog post from the company confirmed that it will not be bringing the wireless charging feature to the phone and will stick to dash charging and said that the company will bring the wireless charging when the time is right.
The back panel of the device will face definite change as the dual camera module seems to have a slight bump and that fingerprint sensor has been replaced from home button to below the rear camera to accommodate the big screen.
