Only a 128GB storage version of the phone has been listed, and it is backed by 4GB RAM. The RAM, through software manipulation, is expandable up to 11GB, and there is a space for micro SD-card as well, should you run out of memory.

Camera specs are not as interesting as the CPU though. You are getting almost similar lenses used on the Hot 12i. These includes a 13MP main snapper, 2MP depth and a third AI sensor, along with 4-LED lights on the rear. The Hot 12 also has an 8-megapixel selfie cam on the front, and two frontal LED lights are available as well.
