The primary sensor refers to having a 6-axis hybrid gimbal OIS/EIS stabiliser. The gyro sensor’s data is used by the primary camera’s stabiliser to adjust for abrupt z-axis movements forward and backwards in addition to compensating for movement on the x- and y-axis. While the ultrawide secondary lens also functions as a macro camera.
