It has a large screen, a 3.5mm headphone jack for wired headsets, and a large 5,000 mAh battery that lasts the day. Although the smartphone was unveiled in the global market in September, it took about two months to reach India, where it will get tough competition from other manufacturers like Realme, Xiaomi, Vivo, etc.
