With up to 40 times magnification, the Microlens offers exceptional detail for users when exploring the microscopic world beyond the naked eye.

The 6.7-inch large AMOLED display’s 93 per cent screen-to-body ratio and 2.32 mm lower bezel also ensure more user immersion when engaging with any content.
