Under the hood, there is an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC. The handset has a metal frame with glass back. It comes preloaded with artificial intelligence (AI) based facial recognition feature and includes a rear-facing fingerprint sensor that is touted to recognise the recorded fingerprints to unlock the screen in 0.2 seconds. The company has scheduled a launch on July 30.
