It has a fingerprint sensor on the back that can recognize in just 0.1 seconds, USB Type-C connector and packs a 3000mAh with support for fast charging. The company says that charging the phone using 24W charger for 5 minutes will let you make a voice call for 3.5 hours. At the launch event the company said that it has 550 service centers across India.
