The regular ports are present, including a 3.5mm audio jack. You can insert two SIM cards and one memory card in the SIM slot. The power button itself has a fingerprint scanner, which is very responsive. The smartphone weighs around 196 to 197 grams, and the build quality is good for a budget device.
Talking about the display, you’ll get a 6.74-inch FHD Plus LCD drop display with a 90Hz refresh rate, providing a smooth experience. The peak brightness is 600 nits, ensuring good visibility indoors.

The device runs on MIUI 13 based on Android 11, providing a smooth and refined experience. There are pre-installed applications, but uninstalling them improves the user experience. The software receives regular updates, including security patches.
The speaker setup is a single-firing speaker, and the battery is massive at 5000mAh. It supports 18W fast charging, but out of the box, you get a 10W charger. Connectivity-wise, being a budget 5G device, it supports dual 5G SIMs.
