As mentioned there is 2GB on-board RAM, 16GB storage and micro SD card support that will allow users to add up to 64GB of external storage cards.

This Pegasus handset sports a 5 inch screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. A 5MP camera is on the front and an 8MP auto focus camera on the rear with LED flash. The handset design is the same as seen on the Asus Zenfone series.
