The display comes in at 5.5-inches and makes use of an FHD resolution. While cameras include a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Additional features on offer include expandable storage via microSD (up to 64GB), dual-SIM support, and a fingerprint sensor. This is a smartphone that comes powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, comes with Quick Charge support, and comes running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box.
