To recap on the specs, the device comes with a 6.3″ Full HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It runs on a Snapdragon 710 processor which is an upper-midrange unit from Qualcomm.

For imaging, it has a 16MP f/1.7 Sony IMX519 main camera and a 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor. The dewdrop notch in front houses a 25Mp selfie camera that’s packed with AI beautification features.
