Theia also has dedicated shutter buttons on either side of the surface for ergonomic comfort of use. Powering the guts of the device is the Snapdragon 888 flagship processor that takes care of all the image processing and fancy tech to leverage the most out of the powerful rear camera sensor. The phone also gets a full-fledged array of unidirectional built-in microphones and a 3.5 mic input.
On the software front, the camera hones multiple color filters, 4K slow-motion at 120fps, and 5-axis image stabilization. The latter promises excellent shooting quality in the most unstable shooting environments – for example, while running on rocky mountain terrain or during action sports. To make sure you never fall short of ports to pug-in, the vlogging-centric phone gets 3 USB-C ports (two on the sides and one on the bottom) and a micro-SD accessible slot.
