It comes equipped with hardware-level blue light reduction, supports 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, and introduces a circadian rhythm eye protection mode. This combination of hardware and software-based features has earned the device an S++ rating for visual health friendliness.
The smartphone is powered by the Dimensity 8300-Ultra chipset, manufactured using TSMC’s advanced 4nm process. It is paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM, providing robust performance and support for a variety of AI-related features such as Xiao Ai large models, AI portraits, and AI album search.
