    What's up with the crazy difference in sensor/display resolution and aspect ratio? The OLED display is a 1:1 ratio 2560x2560 where as the image from the sensor is a 4:3 1280×1024. Wouldn't a 4:3 AMOLED display in 1280×1024 with a matching aspect ratio make more sense here?

      @H4350pls That explains why some brands/models advertise a different display vs sensor resolution. Thanks.
