You have Titanium and Gold color options to choose from (note that there's none of those materials used in the construction, they're just the names of the hues).
The Palm phone (officially simply called "Palm", which is definitely not confusing at all) features 720p screen resolution, the Snapdragon 435 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 12 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie camera, and an 800 mAh battery. It runs android 8.1 Oreo.
