It is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has your usual assortment of connectivity options such as Bluetooth, WLAN, USB 2.0, and GPS.
What’s new to our ears is the dual SIM standy support for CDMA and GSM networks. It is also powered by a 1500 mAh battery with no indication of expected battery life.
