The inbuilt memory can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. The phone also supports dual Nano-sim cards but only at the expense of the memory card slot.
In the camera department, the phone packs a f/2.2 13MP rear camera accompanied by a LED flash. The phone also has a f/2.2 5MP front camera for all your selfies. Software-wise, the phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Xiaomi’s own custom skin MIUI 8.0 overlaid on top of it. The phone sadly doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner!
