The two bigger sensors are expected to be the main 48MP Sony IMX789 sensor and a 50MP SonyIMX766 ultra-wide camera, something the company has already confirmed. We will need to wait for an official launch to know more about the other two camera sensors. On the camera module, the Hasselblad branding along with an LED flash unit can be seen as well.
