Colour adjustment: Colour correction setting for colour vision deficiency. 

Sound detector: Detects the sounds of the doorbell or a baby crying for hearing-impaired users. 

Flash notification: Notify events such as calls, texts, and the alarm with the rear camera flashes or blinks on the screen.

Mono audio: Switch from Stereo to Mono audio.
