The Chinese brand was set to launch the device on January 7 2019 11 AM in New Delhi. As said above it is postponed to January 10th. The device is an Amazon exclusive one.

The device is coupled with 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of storage. Additionally, there is a micro SD card slot, so we can expand up to 400 GB. Coming to optics, it houses a 16+2MP rear cameras and dual selfie camera i.e 13+2MP dual front cameras.
The device has a physical rear mounted fingerprint scanner and also supports AI face unlock. The device supports Dual 4G VoLTE on board.
