The handset consists of the 3.5mm headphone jack, 4G Dual SIM slots and two Dolby Atmos Audio-tuned speakers that can get the party going, along with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The battery capacity of 5180 mAh offers up to 30 hours of talk time and 10 hours of local video playback and browsing time.
