The smartphones duo are launched following an avalanche of leaks, rumors, and teasers that whetted up our curiosity to the peak.
The specs and features of the new smartphones are quite in line with the rumors that had already divulged much in this regard.

Here is the run-down of the specs and features of both the smartphones.
