On every MTK device, there are two images which are : inside Logo.bin & System.img
Logo.bin: this is the first image you see when your device boots up. It contains the first boot image and also all the battery charging icons. This image appears very quickly just about 2 secs.

System.img: this is the second image that appears when your device is booting up. You can find this image in your phone. It’s located inside /system/image/bootanimation.zip (bootanimation_01.zip)

bootanimation_01.zip –> image for boot the phone
