As for camera technology, WhaTech reported that the 940 XL will have a 20MP primary camera with Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilisation, autofocus, dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, face detection and panorama

"It is just sheer class, and you can expect image quality almost to the level of a professional DSLR. To top it all off, there's the 5 Megapixel secondary camera for all your Skype video calls and your selfies as well," added WhaTech.
