The device will be available in 8GB/ 16 GB storage options with microSD support of up to 64GB. It is powered by a 2100 mAh battery.
It has a 8 MP Autofocus Rear Camera and a 1.9 MP Front Facing Camera.
The smartphone boasts NFC capabilities amongst other connectivity options like Wi-fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS.
The smartphone will roll out first to Ukraine in December 2012, for a price of around 5555UAH (around $680). More details on the global pricing and availability of the device are still unknown.
