As mentioned above, the smartphone comes powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 chipset mated to 4GB of RAM. The inbuilt storage is 32GB, and can be further expanded up to 64GB using a microSD card. In the imaging department, the Speed 8 gets a 21MP primary camera, along with an 8-megapixel selfie-shooter. The dual-SIM smartphone supports 4G LTE on both its slots and offers other connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS and GLONASS. The phone is backed by a 3,600mAh battery.

An engineer by qualification and a writer by interest, Deeksha has been working on blending technology and words together ever since she completed her graduation. A crazy fashion enthusiast, you’ll find her creating the most curious analogies between the world of tech, and say…an haute couture shoe. You might want to look up a fashion glossary before reading her work. Personally a fan of Windows smartphones, Deeksha has developed a knack for Android-powered devices over her time here at 91mobiles, and is just starting to delve into the Macintosh world, while iOS remains on the list. When not writing reviews or features, she likes to read fiction novels, browse through the catalogues of all the brands that exist, shop enough to clothe a small town, discover a new food outlet at least twice a day, crib about being fat…and think of ways to take over the world while doing these things.
