As we have mentioned above, it is a budget category device so don�t expect it to perform like flagship devices. Powering it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425(64 bit) Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.4Ghz�with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 308�GPU for Gaming. Earlier we have seen these similar specs on the Xiaomi Redmi 4A device, so its performance is somewhere similar to that of the new Tab A 2017.
