This version of Pro 5 is packed with 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and micro SD support. A 21.6MP Laser AF camera is placed on the rear and 5MP camera on the front. Rear camera can shoot 4K videos. Key features are 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type C port and finger print sensor. This handset gets power from a 3050 mAh battery.
