The frame of the device is made from plastic and the thickness of it is 8.
According to Huawei, the camera is supposed to withstand heavy weights.
You're not supposed to do this at home.
I bear no responsibility to your actions.
I added 2.
5KG to check if the camera will still work or not.
Let me try to see if the camera still works after closing the camera.
The camera will retract after I remove the weights.
The camera is still working.
Let me try again.
It sill working! Some companies could reach this technology with front facing cameras.
I have to explain something else.
There is a another technology implemented in this device, where if companies use the accelerometer with this camera, the device will detect a fall and retract the camera.
Lots of companies who make phones with retractable cameras are adding this feature to their devices.
The moment the phone detects it is falling, the camera will retract.

Let me use the ultra wide lens.
This is how it looks like.
It can shoot more content in the frame.
Let's see how it performs with sunlight and how th dynamic range will work.
I must explain that Huawei made this device with a retractable camera, resulting in a thicker device due to the mechanism used.
It is also heavy.
The front facing camera is 16MP.
It has 1 Uma Pixel density.
It is supposed to perform greatly as it also supports AI.
It can recognize scenes and give you the best settings for it.

See how it performs with and without direct sunlight.
The CPU inside is the Kirin 710F with 8 cores.
It is from the mid-range category.
It scored 1260 points for single core and 4475 for multi core in Geekbench.
This means that this device performs really good.
The CPU offers good performance compared to the hardware.
We played PUBG on it with high settings.
The performance was smooth.

It supports Bluetooth and WiFi and has a USB-C port and a 3.
5mm headphone jack.

We tested the speaker using Youtube videos.
Let's listen to it: The battery is 4000mAh and it lasts for a full day or more, and it depends on your usage.
It has a rear fingerprint sensor, and compared to other devices, it is not that responsive.
It is acceptable though.

Indeed the camera is inside the frame and gives you a full screen front, but it is not the first time this design is implemented.
Pros; the front facing camera is inside the frame of the device, resulting in a full screen front.
The performance is great compared to its price.
Playing PUBG on it is very smooth.
