The cameras let you capture and create the AR content. These snaps are termed as AR Snaps. The second camera helps you to take the offset image, in turn creating a 3D image. However, a 3D picture can be processed only when the images are transferred to the Snapchat app. Comparing to its predecessors, this device will have a higher resolution. Photos will be captured at 1642×16242 pixels, and videos will be shot at 60 fps. The cameras are wide-angle and will capture images quite vividly.
