There is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX816 OIS telephoto portrait, supporting 50x digital zoom. The front side is surrounded by an anti-distortion wide-angle selfie shooter possibly a 50MP sensor. On the other hand, the Vivo S19 is speculated to have a 50-megapixel GNJ 1/1.56-inch OIS main camera, incorporated with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

Both phones are embedded with a soft light ring (Aura Light) under the camera module. When taking pictures, the “soft light ring” light emission range and light spot focus range are automatically adjusted as the phone lens zooms. Jia Jingdong added, “When using the main camera to take close-ups, the soft light ring will emit a large area of ​​scattered light to provide fill light for wide scenes. When switching to telephoto, the soft light ring will focus the light into a narrower beam to cover distant objects.”
