There’s a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot should you ever require more storage. The smartphone also features an 8MP main camera, a 2,500 mAh battery and ships with Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim as its operating system.
