Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is what serves the protective functions on this phone’s display. So, you can worry less when your smartphone drops from high places. The phone’s 6.2-inch IPS display is equipped with 720 x 1520 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio.

Security-wise, the 8MP notch camera commands Facial ID security on the smartphone. Outside security roles, this notch camera captures decent selfies in bright light and low light. Back to the security aspect, the conventional patterns, PINs, and passwords are available options for safeguarding your smartphone. Sadly, no fingerprint scanner is on board.

The rear camera uses a 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture to capture sleek pictures and videos. Once captured, these files can be stored on the spacious 32GB ROM that’s expandable to 256GB. Meanwhile, there is 2GB RAM to sort out multitasking actions.

At the middle of the park, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC dictates the flow of actions on the phone. It employs the services of an octa-core 1.95GHz CPU to control the smartphone’s affairs.

The user experience on the smartphone is smooth thanks to the Android 9.0 Pie OS and MIUI 10. Lastly, the 5,000mAh battery governs long term duration on the smartphone. Once this battery is low, Fast Charge 18W makes the battery charge up to 100% swiftly.
