The phone runs MIUI 6, which is based on Android 4.4. Internally the phone runs Qualcomm's 64bit Snapdragon 410 processor that's clocked at 1.2GHz. That's pretty good, since Xiaomi could have used the even lower-end Snapdragon 210 processor instead.

The sides and rear are matte plastic, which gives its a non-slippery grip.
