In terms of camera, it has a dual 12MP+12MP wide-angle/telephoto rear camera with 26mm lens and f/2.2 aperture / 50mm lens and f/2.6 aperture, 2X optical zoom, 1.25µm large pixels and dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and a 5MP front-snapper. This combination is backed by 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. If you use a Mi A1, you can check your IMEI by dialling *#06# on the phone's dialler.
