And along with these product listings are specifications, if you’ve been wondering about the hardware the upcoming phone will pack.

Yep, there appears to be no Band 28, which will dropped it from a lot of shopping lists. Pricing is also a bit wonky — $606 from Geekbuying and $916 from Gearbest. Not that it matters, both website are simply offering “arrival notices”, so it’s not like you can even preorder.

That said, now you have an idea of the hardware the device will pack… and how much it could set you back.
