On the rear of the smartphone is an mBack touch-sensitive home button that does different things based on presses. Power comes from a 3050 mAh internal battery that can be charged to 65% capacity in 30 minutes. A reversible USB Type-C port handles charging. The 3GB of RAM version has 32GB of storage with the 4GB of RAM version offering 64GB of storage. The device has dual SIM slots.
