It sports a 3 GB RAM, a 5.5-inch full-HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, 16 GB of internal memory expandable up to 128 GB and a 13 MP rear camera as well.

The phone came with Android 5 Lollipop, but the company has released an Android 6 Marshmallow update for their device. The device supports 2 Micro sims.
