ZTE announced its new Max XL phone today, a Boost Mobile exclusive that features a 6-inch Full HD display and Android Nougat 7.1.1. The phone will cost only $129.99. It’s nice to see ZTE launching even its budget phones with updated Android software as well as a rear fingerprint sensor. But while the company is marketing the device as ideal for streaming videos and playing games, the puny 2GB of RAM will likely be quickly filled up. Still, for the price, users are getting a nice size display, which certainly is useful for watching videos, although the resolution isn’t high enough to make for a gorgeous display.

Here are some of its specs highlights:

  • 1.4GHz Qualcomm octa-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM; 16GB of storage, expandable up to 128GB
  • 3,990mAh battery
  • 13-megapixel rear-facing camera; 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Includes headphone jack and rear fingerprint sensor
  • USB-C
