My phone was working very good, No root nor I did any non sense,

Latest update .165 pop up appeared i preferred not to update coz was scared of some bug and stuff, after alot of prompts,

I updated the device, device finished the update, and after half hour of usage it started constantly automatically rebooting, I dint do anything fearing anything might damage if I try to switch off or anything, after few mins it just switched off and then I plugged into charging (using original charger) and then after few minutes i booted the device by pressing volume down + power key as for the 1st time it dint booted,

Everything in the device was working fine, performed a test from calculator app, but the cameras were not working,

No option to switch to main camera by default wide angle camera in photo and video mode

And in video mode in normal 30fps 4k,FHD,HD on left half side i could see flicker of green and purple colour, (display all fine, facing only in camera app)

But in 60fps 4k, FHD there is no flicker or something its perfect,

And camera is not flipping for some reason

All sensors are working fine

Dropped to service center

After 2 days got a call from engineer he said there is fungus in the motherboard and its a water damage,

Need to change motherboard, flip camera module, and some connectors total 28k
