All the three cameras are equipped with the PDAF technology, f/2.0 aperture, and large pixel size. Thus, allowing users to capture faster and detailed shots in low light. The optics department is pretty impressive, all thanks to the HMD’s partnership with Carl Zeiss. The three lens that you see on the Nokia 8 is Carl Zeiss optics.
