It runs the latest Android Oreo, has Dolby and DTS sound certification, quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, 2.5GB DDR3 RAM, and 16GB EMMC storage, built-in Chromecast and MHL connectivity, Google Assistant with voice-enabled search and wireless smartphone control (with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity), among others.
