As per the Geekbench listing, the phone is powered by Qualcomm’s newest flagship cpu — Sd 855 octa-core chipset along with 6GB of RAM. But, we are expecting the company to launch other versions of the phone with higher RAM.

The 48MP Sony IMX586 back scanner is the same image sensor scanner that is expected to be on the Redmi smartphone launching later this week.
While not Lots is known about the smartphone at this point in time, there are theories that the smartphone might function an in-display fingerprint digital camera. It is Additionally expected to come with an OLED panel with Full HD+ resolution as nicely as support for Always-on panel.
