The 40 MP Supersensing Camera absorbs efficient light and details to capture the amazing scenes and people in the dark. There is this thing called mirror shooting on the camera App. When the Mate XS is folded, it let’s you see how you look even before photos are taken.

Since the rear camera doubles as the front camera after the phone is folded, there is no need for a selfie camera. The main supports autofocus (that includes phase focus, contrast focus and Huawei’s AI Image Stabilization.
