Furthermore, the handset will be coming with an 8-inch 1280 x 800 pixels resolution display and it will be powered by a 3500mAh battery placed on the rear.
Under the hood, there is a MediaTek MT8163 chipset coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and there isn’t any information about the microSD card slot to extend the storage.
