According to the listing, the device will measure 170.99 x 77.6 x 9.78mm and will have a similar design to its predecessor, albeit with a few changes.

It is also known that the upcoming smartphone will run on the latest chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855 Plus. Unfortunately, more details about the device are not available yet.
