To match the power of the display and cam, a 1Ghz dual-core processor and 512MB RAM is installed to make every touch and swipe extremely responsive.
Since this is an Android handset, you're looking at has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS support. There is also, of course, access to thousands of apps via Google Play, and the "pogi" factor doesn't end there. For storage, BLAZE is armed with 4GB of internal storage and an expandable memory of up to 32GB.
