Under the hood, you’ll find a 64-bit octa-core based Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and Adreno 405 GPU alongside a 64GB microSD card slot that can be accessed via the side of the phone.
The RAM and storage configuration defines the phone’s pricing as the 16GB model with 2GB RAM goes for, or more accurately, has a suggested retail price of $370 while the 32GB storage version with 3GB of RAM will set you back at least $434.
