As we mentioned, the smartphone received a powerful 8-core processor Snapdragon 845 and 6 or 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X, which allowed him to score 291,302 points in the benchmark AnTuTu. At the same time, developers were especially concerned about cooling by offering the LiquidCool system with a copper radiator which significantly improved the heat removal from the processor. The capacity of the built-in memory storage depending on the version is 64, 128 or 256 GB (UFS 2.1) while the owner will also be able to additionally use a microSD memory card.
The 4000 mAh battery supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology and allows you to get 8 hours of battery life in game mode, 6 hours in video mode, 31 hours of talk time and about 15 days in Standby mode.
