Users can make video calls, send texts, take pictures and access their favorite apps without opening the phone. The smartphone features a 48-megapixel sensor with a newly added laser autofocus time-of-flight sensor and optical image stabilization, and packs a 2,800mAh battery and charges via a 15W charger that comes included.
