|Touch Screen <strong>Touchscreen => </strong> is of two types; Resistive and Capacitive touchscreen. Resistive Touchscreen (Resistive touchscreens contain two layer of conductive material with a very small gap between them which acts as a resistance), Capacitive touchscreen (Capacitive touchscreen technology consists of a layer of glass coated with a transparent conductor)||Capacitive touch screen|
|Protection <strong>Display Protection =></strong> The widely used and best display protection is Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use, it is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind.||Yes, Scratch resistance Glass (advertised)|
|Chipset <strong>Chipset</strong>is a group of integrated circuits designed to perform one or a more dedicated functions, often with real time computing constraints, Popular smartphones are equipped with more advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming.||Spreadtrum UniSoC SC9863A|
|CPU <strong>CPU => </strong>(Central Processing Unit) mostly known as processors, CPU processes instructions in order to carry out certain functions that make your device operate properly. Processors are often described as the brain of computers, smartphones and tablets. Smartphones and tablets rely on processors to carry out their every task, Processors are an incredibly important factor in selecting any type of computing device, including your smartphone.||Octa-core (4x1.6 GHz Cortex-A55 CPU and 4x1.2 GHz Cortex-A55)|
|GPU <strong>GPU => </strong>A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device. This include things such as lighting effects, object transformation and 3D motion.||PowerVR GE8322|
|RAM <strong>RAM</strong> (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.||3GB RAM|
|Expandable Storage <strong>Expandable storage or Card Slot</strong> is a special slot for inserting a memory card. Memory cards allow you to expand the phone's built-in memory, A memory card (sometimes called a flash memory card or a storage card) is a small storage medium used to store data such as text, pictures, audio, and video, for use on small, portable or remote computing devices such as mobile phones, mp3 players, digital cameras.||Yes, up-to 128GB via microSD card|
|OS <strong>OS => </strong>Every computer system run on a base software called Operating System (OS). Operating System controls all basic operations of the computer (such as smartphone, PDAs, tablet computers and other handheld devices). The Operating System allows the user to install and run third party applications (apps), apps are used to add new functionality to the device.||Android 10 (Go Edition)|

|Bluetooth||Yes, Bluetooth 4.1|
|Wireless Charging <strong>Wireless Charging</strong> (Inductive Charging) uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device, which can then use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.||No|
|Headphone Jack||Yes, 3.5mm Jack|
|Sensor <strong>Sensors </strong>are electronic components that detects and responds to some type of input from the physical environment. The specific input could be light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure and location, The output is generally a signal that is converted to use in computing systems, a location sensor, such as a GPS receiver is able to detect current location of your electronic device.||Fingerprint (rear-mounted), gyro, accelerometer, proximity|
|Messaging||SMS, Email, MMS|
