As for the processor, the phones use a 2.0-GHz Quad-core CPU, ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPU and MediaTek Helio P23 MT6763. This system looks like the one available in Infinix ZERO 5, but with some minimal modifications.
The operating system is Android 8.1 (Oreo) with Android One. The predecessor model came with Android 7.0, so this is a good improvement.
