The photo camera has become one of the essential aspects of our mobile phones. So much so that it is one of the main reasons for buying a phone. If you no longer remember what the sensors that the mobile camera had You can use this trick that we tell you now.

It is no longer like two or three years ago, when mobiles generally had a camera sensor, or at most two, now it is normal to see cameras with four and five sensors, making it difficult to remember their configuration.

The normal thing is that if you look at the inscriptions that appear on the outside of the phone is to see only the size and characteristics of the main sensor. If we have a quad camera, the logical thing is to see the inscription of the 48 or 64 megapixel main sensor, its focal aperture etc. But there is a way to see the other details of the other camera sensors, all four of them. To do this, do the following in the phone settings.

  • Enter the system settings
  • Click on “about the phone”
  • Select “hardware info”

Now you can see a summary with all the details of the hardware of our phone, among this information we can see that our mobile phone has a rear camera with two sensors, one 48-megapixel Quad Pixel and the other 5-megapixel. While we can also see that in front it has a 25 megapixel camera.

So it gives us the information about all the sensors that the phone has. Information that we can see along with the rest of the hardware of our phone. Undoubtedly, the most interesting thing about this is that we do not have to resort to a third-party app that tells us what the hardware of our phone is, but it is the system itself that tells us.

In this case we have analyzed the information of a Motorola One Vision, and this fully matches the original camera settings. These settings are usually common on most Android phones. You never know when we are going to want to see this information on the phone, but without a doubt this is the most immediate way to access the information. Although you can also try entering the mobile comparator of Movilzona, where you will be able to appreciate all the details of the technical sheet of your phone, including the information of all the sensors of your camera.
