For photography, there's 16MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and OIS, PDAF and 4K video recording. The front facing camera is a 8MP unit. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C.

For software it runs Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI on top. There's a fingerprint scanner baked into the home button on the front and packs BoomSound Adaptive Audio and 24-bit high-res audio for immersive sound experience. A 3200mAh battery complete the specifications list.
