The camera modules houses a 13 Megapixel main camera and a 5 Megapixel supporting sensor for depth of field and is responsible for blurring out the background of our photos, something like you see on DSLR cameras. On the Front is a 13 Megapixel shooter that takes care of the Selfies and high-resolution video calls.
