Sporting a 6.41-inch display with full-HD+ resolution, it is an AMOLED display with “Halo” notch having a screen to body ratio of 91.7%. It will be running on the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 SoC. India hasn’t seen a phone launched with this processor yet and even by June, the country is less likely to get an SD855 SoC enabled phone. So, that’s quite an advantage for the brand. 

The chipset is said to be supported by a numerous list of AI features and technology for better performance. To name them, Super Liquid Cooling Tech, AI Turbo, Net Turbo, Cooling Turbo, and Game Turbo. It comes with a 4000mAh capacity battery and whooping 44W fast charging technology. The company states that it would be running on a custom OS based on Android 9 Pie. 

The phone was launched in four configurations in China; 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 256GB. As far as the camera department is concerned, it has a triple rear camera setup; 12MP + 13MP + 2MP. Talking about the front camera it is of 12MP resolution.
