With the rear panel design exactly the same as U12 Life, it has a glossy upper body with textured bottom half. The camera module seems like a dual camera built but it is a camera with LED flash. #bamboozledagain

It has a 5.7 inches display that doesn’t specifically follow the trend. It’s good to see people who insist of their originality instead of mimicking others.


Lastly, it is available in 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM option and 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM option and priced from around RM811 to RM946, available January onward.
