Hi there, I need you to change some specifications, first is the screen-to-body ratio from 85.2% to 84.9%, and second is the Bluetooth features, please remove the PBAP/PAB, PAN, OPP, MAP, HSP, HID, HFP, DIP, AVRCP and add the LE Bluetooth feature, third is the GPS, please remove the GPS and Beidou and add the A-GPS, GALILEO and BDS GPS, that's all the specifications that I need you to change for the A50, this is 100% real specification for the global model, please change it.
