The upper camera, on the other hand, can be revealed through a mechanical system, with a spring that needs to be activated by the user — that is, it does not automatically go up as it does on some smartphones. The camera has a 2 MP sensor and is capable of capturing images in 1024p for meetings or general recording. In addition, it supports Windows Hello to allow unlocking by facial recognition in less than two seconds, in addition to authorizing other processes, such as online shopping for example.
