Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s recently announced Snapdragon 750G SoC. The hardware will be completed with 4GB, 6GB and up to 8GB of RAM (in LPDDR4X format).

A large 5,000mAh battery is also present, which supports fast charging at up to 15W via its USB-C port. In the official image, it is not specified if it has a 3.5mm audio jack. It is also not known if it will incorporate an NFC chip to make mobile payments and other pairing functions.
At the rear, the phone has a quad-camera set up in a square module. The system is composed of a 48-megapixel primary sensor (f/1.8 aperture), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2 aperture), a 5-megapixel depth sensor (f/2.4 aperture), and a macro lens of 5 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture). Meanwhile, a 20-megapixel front camera will be present in the notch of its screen.
Finally, it will arrive in multiple color variants like Prism Dot Black, Prism Dot White, and Prism Dot Gray. Unfortunately, although the official specifications of the smartphone have been shown in the image, the company has not yet revealed an official date of availability or its starting price. However, we can expect the device to be more affordable than the previously released Samsung Galaxy A51 5G.
