A 10000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging and 15W wireless charging keeps the lights on. Processing power depends on a MediaTek Helio G35 (MT6765V/WB) chipset with four 2.3GHz Cortex-A53 CPU cores and four other of those but clocked at 1.8GHz. The graphics department is managed by an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at 680 MHz. The smartphone arrives with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of storage that can be expanded via a microSD card.
