Additionally, 1080p will be rendering on this 5.5 inch screen, which will conserve more battery as opposed to a 2K display. For extended battery life, a 3,150 mAh cell has been incorporated, along with a fast charging feature called mCharge tech.

While it might not be as fast as Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 feature, consumers who purchase MX5 will still be able to reach to 25 percent of the handset’s battery after plugging it in for just 10 minutes. Furthermore, you will be able to get the percentage level to 50 after plugging in the smartphone for 20 more minutes. As for the rear camera sensor, a 20 MP Sony IMX220 has been added with a dual-tone LED flash plus laser autofocus tech.
