Display

1.resolution

800 x 1280px

1080 x 2220px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

216ppi

441ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.2GHz

2 x 2.2GHz & 6 x 1.6GHz (Samsung Exynos 7885)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

1GB

4GB
