All four phones will be equipped with AMOLED displays and are expected to have a butter-like smooth 120Hz refresh rate. According to reports, the "Pro" model will be equipped with 6GB of memory. For the camera system, the Pro unit will be equipped with wide-format, ultra-wide-format and telephoto cameras and LiDar time-of-flight sensors to achieve more accurate depth measurement and enhanced AR functions. Standard models will be equipped with wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle cameras. All four phones will be compatible with signals below 6GHz and mmWave 5G.
