The FCC certification reveals MediaTek Helio G85, MIUI 12.5, which should be based on Android 11 and a 4000mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging. However, according to Bluetooth SIG it will support Bluetooth 5.2, but the G85 only supports 5.0, which is contradictory.

It will likely come with a FHD+ screen. The Twitter users further says that the phone will be launched in Europe and Russia markets.
