    Under the hood, the smartphone makes use of a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 636 processor which is coupled with Adreno 509 GPU to render all the graphics. The device is available in 6GB of RAM and comes with 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The internal storage is further expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. The device ships with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and is backed by a 3,300mAh battery.
