Acting as the brain of the system, two Kryo 260 quad-core processors having 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz clock speeds are present. The processors are coupled with a 6GB RAM in order to deliver a quality performance. Adding to these, an Adreno 512 GPU takes care of the graphical requirements of the system. The entire configuration is seated on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 MSM8956 chipset.
