As for the screen, the 6.0 inches FULL HD+ OLED panel protected by gorilla glass 6 will be seen, and the viewing experience will be improved dramatically with the help of HDR 10+ and a high-quality 90Hz refresh rate.

Memory and Internal

From the first day, the phone will run on the standard Android 11 operating system with its usual bloatware-free skin. In addition to software, the Snapdragon 765G chipset can easily meet day-to-day requirements as it starts with 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage.

In addition, you will have support for the UFS 2.1 memory type under the hood. However, Google might have to insert the Snapdragon 865+ or the normal Snapdragon 865 to maintain its status. The phone will only be able to support Sub-6.0 networks, and there is no chance that it will be able to work with mmWaves transport options.

Camera

A standard punch hole 8 MP selfie camera is intact on the phone. As for the rear camera, a 12.2 MP primary camera comes with a 16 MP ultra-wide-angle lens that provides a 107-degree view. With this setting, you can take fantastic quality photos and videos from 4K at 30/60 fps, while on a 1080p selfie camera at 30 fps. In addition, the built-in Google camera application will further help improve the camera performance with its software.

Battery and Others

A Li-Po 4080 mAh battery pack is placed in the phone and charges via the 18W fast charging. In addition, it includes the wireless charging, reversing wireless charging to improvise the pattern.

In addition, it did not have a 3.5 mm jack port and dual SIM slot. Instead, NFC, stereo speakers with three microphones are built into the phone. In addition, you can use only a single SIM.
