Anyway on paper, the device features a Flat-edge thin body with a neat-looking back design in Misty Green colorway and a 6.74-inch 1.5K HDR10+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1.5K resolution, 1,450 nits brightness, In-Display fingerprint sensor, and a top-center punch-hole for the 16MP wide selfie camera.

Under the hood, it uses the  3.05GHz 4nm Dimensity 9000 octa-core processor with Mali-G710 MP10 GPU. This is a former flagship chipset last year that is still very capable even in 2023.

It also has 16GB LPDDR5X RAM, 4GB to 12GB virtual RAM, 256GB UFS 3.1 of internal storage, 5,000mAh capacity with support for the 80W SUPERVOOC fast charging, Battery Health Engine tech for up to 1,600 charging cycles, SUPERVOOC S charging management chipset, and a 50MP f/1.9 Sony IMX890 main sensor with OIS paired with an 8MP f/2.3 ultra-wide-angle + 2MP f/2.4 macro + Ambient Light Sensor.

For the rest of the specs, it goes with a 4129.8mm² large VC advanced cooling system with 60 percent higher heat dissipation than its previous generation, an alert slider, X-axis linear motor, stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio, Dolby Atmos, WiFi 6G, 5G, 4G LTE, and Android 13 OS with OxygenOS 13.1 skin.

The device also has TÜV SÜD 48-Month Fluency Rating A ensuring that the phone will remain smooth as new over the years.

As of the moment

We are enjoying the device so far and it is definitely one of the strongest mid-rangers around. 

Its build gives an expensive look due to its upgrades on design, the display with ultra slim bezels is beautiful, the performance is definitely smooth with 5G, the battery capacity is solid with 80W fast charging, and the cameras are flagship-grade for us.

We will still use the phone in the next few days, so stay tuned for our full review soon.

Currently, there’s no official PH price yet, but we are guessing that it could be within the premium midrange price range. 

Are you guys excited?
