The device features a MediaTek MTK6750T Cortex A53 octa-core 64-bit chipset under the hood combined with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (microSD card slot available for expansion to 128GB).

The U15S takes advantage of a 13MP Panasonic back camera plus a 5MP selfie snapper. It’s not the most advanced camera combo, but given that this is a mid-range handset the options provided are pretty decent.

However, the variant sold on GearBest features a 16MP Panasonic main camera plus an 8MP OV secondary shooter.
