The device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with versions available in three variants – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Powered by 8GB RAM, the phone is set to dwarf the mighty Samsung Galaxy S9 with only 4GB RAM. The phone will come with dual cameras and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The recent teaser also shows the Alert slider to move to the right side which helps users in focusing camera on particular objects.
