The Processor and Operating System

The phone is powered by a 1GHz dual core Cortex-A9 processor and runs v4.1 of the Android operating system, known as Jelly Bean. The phone has 1GB of RAM for seamless multitasking, and is available with either 8GB or 16GB of onboard memory, expandable by up to a further 32GB via the microSD card.


One of the cool new features of this phone is "smart stay". The display remains bright when you look at it and if you want to call somebody who you have just texted, just lift the phone to your ear and it will dial them automatically.

Another new feature is S-voice which understands certain commands. For example, you can tell your phone to wake up, to answer or take a photo. The "smart alert" feature vibrates to notify you of missed calls and new messages.


The main 5MP camera takes photos and videos. One special feature is that it can take 8 shots in a row and choose the best one.
