Dubbed "Beauty All Around", the device has a 13 MP + 2 MP dual camera setup perched at the rear horizontally and a 16 MP selfie camera on the front inside the notch.
In terms of battery, the budget Android phone packs a decent 3,000 mAh battery. It weighs 152 grams and encloses a dual nano-SIM. A 3.5mm jack is placed at the bottom of the phone. The phone comes equipped with a Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot and a microUSB 2.0 port.
