It uses Super AMOLED technology and has Quad HD resolution.

Some other new features are included such as: A button in the camera app which activates a “live broadcast” mode, which streams 1080p high definition video to YouTube and sends invitations to selected acquaintances.
Also, there is now support for the ultra-high quality audio (UHQA) format. There is also a new hardware component which reduces sound distortion when files saved in the codec are played. Users can also use bundled software to “upscale” existing MP3s. Prices are $740(148,000 Naira) for the 32 GB model and $840 (168,000 Naira) for the 64 GB model
