On the software front, it runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat platform and supports connectivity options like NFC. Most of the specs are found to be similar with the previous listing, except for a few changes. Correspondingly, the earlier listing stated that, it is powered by a Snapdragon 652 processor, with 3GB RAM, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and there is no NFC support.

Further, both the listings have revealed the same details, when it comes to the cameras. The Idol 5 will sport a 12MP rear camera that is capable for shooting 4K and HDR videos, while an 8MP sensor is set for the selfie shooter.
