This is the company’s latest flagship smartphone as it calls it and it is priced quite aggressively and it has also a great set of specs for the price.

You can assign it to any app or action you want. Internally it is powered by a 3200mAh battery and it is also powered by a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging.
