The other highlight we mentioned is the battery, a 5,000mAh power cell that can be recharged at 44W. The USB-C port also handles headphone duties, but if you want to go wireless, the Bluetooth 5.1 modem can handle aptX HD/Adaptive and LDAC.

The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 695 which is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage (there’s no microSD slot). The Android 13 based OriginOS 3 can add up to 8GB of virtual memory.

As for the photography section, it has basic camera setup with a 50MP main sensor on the rear (f/1.8 lens with OIS), but is limited to 1080p video because of the chipset. It is joined by a 2MP depth sensor. On the front there is an 8MP selfie camera (f/2.0) that lives in a notch.
