The camera section is market dependent. According to the area it’s selling, the variants can have dual or triple camera setup. If it’s dual, LG takes off the telephoto lens and rest two remains the same.
In the frontier, there’s an 8MP (f/1.7) so shooter with ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. This sensor adds a new feature called Hand ID, where the user can unlock the mobile by hovering his hand over. That’s a palm-vein authentication!
