The device has the right specs to call itself a powerhouse and its price has been Rs 39,999. This makes it a direct competitor to OnePlus 6T and several other budget flagship phones.
The M16 packs in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC inside along with a water cooling system for heat dissipation.

The main camera features OIS, while the 20 MP secondary unit is accompanied by a 3x telephoto lens. There is also a laser autofocus system to accompany the OIS system.
