As for specifications, rumors hint at a 5.99-inch HD+ (1440 720 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC paired with 2GB RAM, and 16GB onboard storage. Rumors also hint at two more variants 32GB + 3GB RAM, and 64GB storage with 4GB RAM.

The rest of the rumored specs include a dual-camera setup (12-megapixel + 5-megapixel), a 16-megapixel front camera, and a 3,080mAh battery. On the software front, it could run Android Oreo OS with MIUI 9.5 on top.
