As for the optics, there are a set of three snappers at the back, which includes a 48MP main camera along with a 2MP depth and a 2MP macro camera.

The phone has a 3D curved back with a fingerprint resistant finish, comes with Z-axis linear vibration motor, splash resistant P2i coating and has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. On the inside, there is a 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charging, while a 22.5W charger is included in the box.
