It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is packed with a 3,400 mAh battery with fast charging technology. Other features include; a fingerprint scanner, dual-sim support, 4G/LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, and GLONASS.

Second off, we've got the Power One, which is a proud device with 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display (1920 x 1080p resolution), and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It sports an octa-core MediaTek MT6750T SoC, clocked at 1.5GHz, plus Mali T860 MP2 graphics, matched with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB built-in memory (expandable up to 128GB via microSD).
