Its CPU possesses 8 cores that speed up to 2.0GHz while its Mali G52 MC2 GPU delivers sweet graphics at 1,000MHz speed. You can game as much as you want thanks to a 5,020mAh battery in the mix.

In addition to gaming, the smartphone possesses slick multitasking skills thanks to the 3GB/4GB RAM attached to the chipset. Similar to the RAM variance, you also have the 64GB and 128GB ROM variants to select from. More so, there’s a MicroSD card slot that gives room for storage expansion.

Well, large storage like this is needed to store the crisp images and videos captured by the phone’s cameras. At the rear, a primary 48MP wide camera is supported by 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth cameras, and LED flash. Beneath the square compartment, there’s a fingerprint scanner that handles touch ID biometric security.

To emphasize its security, the top left-positioned front 13MP camera not only captures cool selfies and videos but it also offers Facial ID biometric protection. That leaves you with security options including patterns, passwords, and PINs at your fingertips.

Moving on, your display functions are well relayed by the 6.53-inch IPS screen and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. And Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is on board to provide adequate screen protection.
