According to a report by Android Authority, the leaked retail box confirms the rumoured dual camera set up. The image posted shows a side of the retail box which reads 'Dual Camera. Clearer Photos.' The company has also asked weibo users to choose the front of the retail box, from a selection of eight images. Another leak hinted at the smartphone with 3,330 mAh battery instead of the expected bump in the battery life.
