The dual rear cameras come out, joined at the hip. They are nicely labeled "wide" and "tele" on the flex cables. Thanks, Google.

The 16 MP telephoto sensor might sound superior to the 12.2 MP when counting megapixels alone, but the wide sensor should handily win most image quality contests with its wider aperture and larger 1.4-μm pixel width.

Next out: the front-facing sensors, including the 8 MP front-facing camera, and the Face ID face unlock hardware. (The ambient light sensor stays stuck to the display for now.)

The biometric hardware consists of two well-separated Near Infrared (NIR) cameras, a NIR flood emitter, and a NIR dot projector.

But where's that Soli radar chip? Okay Google, where did you hide it?
