On the camera front, the smartphone has an 8MP primary camera capable of 1080p video recording and a 5MP camera at the front for selfies.
The entire device is backed by a 1950mAh battery which is supposed to last long for a long time. In terms of connectivity, the dual SIM smartphone supports VoLTE, Wi-Fi (b/g/n) at 2.4 GHz, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.2. The smartphone was shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a TouchWiz skin on top.
