In addition, the smartphone is equipped with touch-sensitive triggers on the side with a sampling rate of 320 Hz for instant response.


The battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh is responsible for autonomy. There is support for 55W fast charging. In 20 minutes, 68% is typed, and it takes 39 minutes to fully charge.
