It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and it has Qualcomm's 5G modem, X50, in its core and it runs on Android 9.0 Pie. The phone sports 6GB RAM and 128GB storage that can be expanded further using a 2TB microSD card.
In terms of camera, the 5G enabled phone comes with a triple rear camera setup at the back with a 16MP super wide-angle lens, a 12MP standard lens and a 12MP telephoto lens. In the front, it sports a dual-camera setup with an 8MP standard lens and a 5MP wide angle lens. It runs on a 4,000 mAh battery and it comes with a secondary 6.2-inch Full HD+ Full Vision OLED attachable display that attaches itself to the side of the phone.
