It has a metal build similar to the Redmi Note 5, and even though it is 7.7mm thick, it still manages to pack a 3300 mAh battery. The fingerprint sensor on the phone is available on the back. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE support, Hybrid Dual-SIM (micro + nano/microSD) slot, Infrared sensor, WiFi, Bluetoth, GPS and FM Radio.
