Under the hood, we have the Snapdragon 710 chipset with the different RAM variants. On the camera side, we have two sensors at the back, one a 48 MP f/1.7 aperture lens and the other a 5MP f/2.4 lens. For selfies, we have a pop-up 16MP f/2.0 lens. Powering all this we have a 3,765 mAH battery that can be topped up quickly using the VOOC charger given in the box. Following on the trend of 2019, this device also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

On the back, we have two lenses along with a fingerprint reader. One is a 16 MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and the other a 5 MP f/2.4 leṇs.
