The tipster claims that the phone will feature LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.

The 50-megapixel primary camera, which appeared in a previous report, is now said to be a Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor with OIS and it is said to be accompanied by a 2-megapixel camera. Selfies will be handled by a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, as per the tipster. The handset could have a 5,000mAh battery and will also come with 120W wired charging, as per previous leaks.
