The phone packs a 5.86-inch HD+ 2.5D 19:9 aspect ratio display with a notch which is good. Powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC with 3GB of RAM, the phone can play graphic-intensive games including PUBG smoothly. Even though it can play the game in high settings, it was smooth with medium graphics.

It runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) OS which is stock since this is an Android One smartphone. The company has promised Android Pie update for the phone soon. In the notch there is an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, 80.4-degree wide-angle lens. It offers AI-powered selfie portraits and beauty mode.

The power button and the volume rockers are present on the right side.

The hybrid dual SIM slot is present on the left side.

The phone has a glass back which gives it a premium look. There is a 13-megapixel main camera along with a secondary 5-megapixel camera for AI portrait shots. Both the front and rear cameras are decent and the portraits were pretty good as well. There is a fingerprint sensor below the camera which is quick to unlock the phone.

The phone packs a 3060mAh battery, but it comes with a standard 10W charger. It will be available exclusively from Flipkart as well as Nokia Online store.
