It has a triple rear camera setup of 48+8+2MP along with a 32MP selfie camera. Meanwhile, it packs a 4030mAh battery with 18W fast charging (Quick Charge 3) support. Most importantly, the handset runs on Android 9.0 Pie over Android One program which ensures the two years of major Android updates.

It comes with SDM660 with a maximum frequency of 2.2GHz coupled with 4/6GB RAM and an internal storage of 32,64, and 1258GB. It is also an Android One smartphone which means it is among the first to get major updates as it has already shown after getting a bump from Android Oreo 8.1 to Android Pie 9.0 last year. It is expected to get Android 10 updates as well so we will probably have to wait for 2020 to unfold to get an update via OTA.

Rather than getting a 12+20MP sensor at the back with A2, the Lite version got a 12+5MP dual camera setup.
