Other leaked specifications of the phone are a 4,520mAh battery, Android 11 out-of-the-box, and 33W fast charging support.

The phone is said to come with a 6.67-inch display with full HD+ resolution with up to 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The phone will come in Phantom Black, Metal Bronze and Frost Blue colour options.
