Not only that, but it is also a way in building hype for their upcoming handheld device by continuously tweeting some hints about it almost every day.

The smartphone seems to have a dual-camera system that is very similar to the popular smartphone from Apple.

According to CNet, it will be powered by six or eight GB of RAM with OxygenOS based on Android. The others feature it has are the fingerprint scanner and 4G LTE multimode modem. It can even be used longer with its mammoth-sized 3,600-mAh battery.
