The Sapphire Edition has a gold mid-frame. This edition also comes with a Charge Pal, case, and earphones.
Its other specs are the same. It sports a 5-inch 1080p screen, uses a HiSilicon octa-core chipset, and has an 8mp/13mp dual-camera. Its OS is the EMUI. Expect this version to be more expensive than the regular version.
