It is expected to feature WVGA touchscreen display of unknown size, a 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor, Mali-400GPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera. Connectivity wise, the device will be equipped with dual-SIM card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, FM Radio, and microUSB v2.0 port.
