The smartphone packs 32GB of inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB). It sports a 16-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash and an 8-megapixel fixed-focus front camera.
Connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB, apart from 4G (LTE Cat. 4 support). The handset weighs 152 grams and it is backed by a 3200mAh battery.

The alleged Lyf Water 9, on the other hand, features a 5.5-inch full-HD display and also comes with 2.5D DragonTrail glass on top.
