The 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage variant has been priced at Rs 10,999 and the 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage variant can be bought for Rs 12,999.

The smartphone comes with a dual camera setup at the back with both the cameras having a 13-megapixel sensor. One sensor is RGB whereas the other sensor is monochrome. On the front, we get to see an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
