However, in this aspect is more than the height of what can be expected in 2017, making the most of its screen in relation to the overall dimensions.
Thus, the Smartphone has a typical organization with almost nonexistent side frames, a small space on the top to include its front camera, and underneath the three traditional Android capacitive buttons.

Inside, you can find a processor in charge of MediaTek that corresponds to one of the versions that were later released in 2016, MTK6750T eight-core at a frequency of 1.5 GHz. It is also accompanied by a Mali-T860 GPU, 4 GB Of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage that can be expanded through a microSD of 128 GB.
As for the battery, it is not a model that wins prominence in the field, since its capacity of 2850 mAh is quite standard for a model of 5 inches Full HD. It is also promised that its fingerprint sensor is updated to the latest standards, so recognition is immediate with features to block the home screen as well as certain Apps or individual sections.

Particularly if one is loving to portray the landscapes from a distance, this mobile does it perfectly.
Ahead, the phone has a 16-megapixel sensor, which ensures great quality for the “selfies” that are so fashionable. Even in dimly-lit places, a full-screen illumination function and even a “soft” LED Flash have been added, which means that it prevents the user from having an impact on their eyesight when capturing.
