In terms of optics, the Nokia 7 boasts a 16-megapixel f/1.8 rear camera and a 5-megapixel f/2.0 84-degree wide-angle camera in the front. It also features what Nokia calls Dual-Sight technology and Bothie, which basically lets you use the front and rear camera simultaneously, just like what the Nokia 8 has.
