MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 5G chip sits at the helm alongside 4GB RAM and 128GB storage which is expandable up to 2TB via the microSD slot. The software side is covered by Android 12 while the battery capacity comes in at 4,000 mAh and does up to 18W charging. The phone also brings a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and headphone jack.
