They’ve placed the Time-of-flight (ToF) sensor to the back of the phone.
This sensor measures the distance between the camera, the subject, and the background, aiding in making portraits better.
The rear cameras have a telephoto lens, an ultrawide lens, and a standard wide lens along with the ToF sensor.
