The secondary display when folded can be used to shoot selfies using the Leica-branded triple camera setup, or share the same content as the primary display. Speaking of camera, it comes with 40MP wide angle lens plus 16MP ultra wide angle lens plus an 8MP telephoto lens, which is almost identical to that of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
