The device is expected to come with a 4,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging technology along with in-display fingerprint reader.
An initial price of US $ 500 is expected, but the company could make it more affordable taking into consideration it’s popularity in the Indian market. There is still no information on the launch date of this device, but it is speculated that it will be made official sometime in the month of July.
