Coming towards the specifications and technical details of this gigantic device, it will sports a huge 21.5-inch IPS full HD touch screen display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. This wide range of pixel resolution make the display more crispier and crystal clear by blending 103.4ppi of pixel density.
