Spotted by PriceRaja, the EXIF data of the photos show a resolution of 4640×3480 pixels, which translates to 16-megapixels. However, it is important to note that the EXIF data can be easily tampered with. The photos look good, but if you look closer, some amount of graininess is visible too. However, it may be due to some compression while posting on social media.
