The LYF Water 6 is equipped with 2,920mAh Lithium-ion battery, which the company claims is good enough to offer up to 15 hours of talktime on 4G, 290 hours standby time, 5 hours of HD video playback and 19 hours of audio playback. Connectivity options include dual-SIM (4G+2G), 4G, VoLTE, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS and USB 2.0. On the software front, the smartphone runs Android Lollipop 5.1.1.
