At its rear, it features a triple-camera set-up that includes a 12MP primary sensor accompanied by a 12MP telephoto camera and a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. At the front, it houses a 10MP selfie camera in a punch-hole notch and a 4MP under-display camera.
In terms of connectivity, it offers 5G SA/NSA, dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ax, Bluetooth v5.2 LE, ultra-wideband, GPS with GLONASS, USB Type-C port, and NFC.
