The Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem is being used by the connection and is RF solution compatible. The object is to enhance the efficiency of the smartphone motherboard stacking and RF/antenna design. All in all, a highly anticipated feature for sure.

The smartphone has received 3C certification and will be including four models, M1810E5A, M1810E5E, M1810E5EC, and M1810E5T. The phone could also come in four different colors. The RAM storage will comprise of 6GB and the internal storage capacity will not be any less than 64GB.
