The handset flaunts a 5.7-inch Full View HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and is powered by either Snapdragon 425 SoC or Snapdragon 450 chipset. Camera-wise, there are dual 13MP+8MP sensors on the rear and an 8MP sensor on the front. The handset is likely to boot on Android Oreo out of the box and to be offered in two configurations: 2GB + 16GB and 3GB and 32GB.
