Phone is packed with a High end Snapdragon 820 SoC, it has Quad-cores where 2 cores are clocking at 1.8 GHz while for handling heavy tasks; remaining 2 cores are clocking at 2.23 GHz frequency.

Smartphone is especially designed to support modular component, currently there are 4 component available in market;
