The smartphone features a 6.2–inch HD+ FullView display with a waterdrop notch on top having a 1520 x 720 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, it is powered by MediaTek’s Helio A22 chipset, coupled with 2 GB of RAM.

It comes with just one storage option — 16 GB but it also comes with a microSD card slot that supports storage expansion up to 256 GB. As for the camera, there’s an 8 MP camera sensor on the back with f/.20 aperture and a 5 MP selfie snapper with f/1.8 aperture.

Being an entry-level smartphone, the company has decided not to offer a fingerprint sensor as a cost-cutting measure. However, the phone does come with support for Face Unlock feature.

The phone runs the older Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own FunTouch OS 4.5 on top. The device is fuelled by a 4030 mAh battery which should be offering an impressive battery life in a single charge.
