Design-wise, it has a sleek with a rugged, yet premium build. It also features a 5.9-inch Full HD display and is powered by Huawei’s latest Hisilicon Kirin 960 chipset which has been discovered to be way ahead of other chip models in smartphones currently in the market. The Kirin 960 processor happens to be the first chipset to utilize a setup made up of 4-Cortex A73 and 4-Cortex A53 CPU. There is also an i6 co-processor and the Mali G71 GPU to go along with it. The phone also comes with 4GB of RAM, although there are reports that Huawei just released a 6GB RAM version.

Packing a dual camera setup at the rear co-engineered by Leica with a 20MP + 12MP sensors, laser focus, phase detection focus, depth and contrast focus that all geared towards producing stunning shots.
