It is also expected to have a MediaTek Helio X20 processor with 4 GB of RAM. In terms of media, it took note of earlier criticism about the camera and improved its capacity to have f/1.9 aperture which allows users to shoot good photos even with low light cnditions. It is also rumored to run on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow upon its release.
