The device stands at 142 mm tall, 64 mm in width, and at only 7.2 mm thin, wighing only 131 grams.

The device packs 3 GB worth of RAM, along with 32 GB worth of built-in internal storage capacity. The storage can be expanded further as the device support microSD expansion of up to 128 GB worth. The microSD slot will be the SIM2 slot. Thus, using an external expansion will render Dual SIM function unusable.
