  • Even if it's primarily an audio phone, it still carries with it some cool specs. Camera and RAM are quite great actually and so is the display. And I don't think the Nougat update might be far away going in this year.

      • It looks great to have dedicated buttons for audio controls on an audio-centric phone. Makes sense, literally.

          • And along with that a handsome memory with 128GB native. I guess, as this is an audio-centric phone, the company might have felt that it would be used more for listening to music and watching videos. So, I think, that's the reason for a bigger storage.
