Hello! I used an app called CPU Z to really know what’s under the hood. It says that the CPU is Mediatek MT6735. Which one is true? Thanks.

Sometimes, CPU Z is not updated with the current list of CPUs so it will just state the closest it knows.

Mr. Estacio, I just bought one today. I can’t help but notice that you mentioned “8MP”. The box says “13MP”…. Typo or just another variant?
