In order to deliver a smartphone that is more compact as per fans’ requests, the vanilla variant sports a 6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED display that pushes a refresh rate of up to 120Hz; it is also protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus to prevent scratches.

Under the hood, we have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC paired with 8/12GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage. It’s also packed with a 4,500mAh battery that supports 67W wired charging, 50W wireless charging, and even 10W reverse charging.

In terms of camera, it has a triple-camera setup which consists of a 50MP main camera that uses Sony’s IMX766 sensor, a 13MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP telemacro lens. For selfies, you have a 32MP front camera.
