The Pre 3 is boosted by a Qualcomm 1.4GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It comes with 8GB or 16GB internal storage and supports USB mass storage. The phone features built-in GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and it includes WiFi hotspot functionality for sharing 3G connection with up to five devices.
