The processor of the smartphone is a Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400; Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801, while the graphic processor is Adreno 330. The phone has an internal memory of 16 GB or even 32 GB and 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM. The operating system is Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat), upgradable to v5.0 (Lollipop) and the device also comes with two amazing cameras. The 13 MP one is the main camera – it comes with auto focus and LED flash and also takes video – while the frontal 2.1 MP one is definitely not worth overlooking, either.
