It also features the Snapdragon 615 processor, with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal space. There is also a version with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB for data, both with MicroSD input. The SF1 also has a pair of 13 and 5 megapixel Sony digital cameras, rear and front respectively, a 3000 mAh battery with quick recharge and dual chip input.
