The device comes with a rear fingerprint scanner as well, for easy access to the phone and private apps. Furthermore, it measures 8.3mm in thickness and weighs 153g overall, which is light and easy to handle. In terms of colours, you can get it in Blue, Gold and Gray colours.
A unique screen here, the smartphone dishes out a unique 19:9 aspect ratio. Only the selfie camera is visible at the top, with not many bezels in sight. Overall the screen stretches up to 80% screen to body ratio.
That’s a little bit disappointing considering only the selfie camera is visible from the front. Nonetheless, the 6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has a resolution of 720 x 1528 pixels and 282 pixels per inch density offering clear visuals.
