The phone has three capacitive buttons below the display, overview, home, and back buttons, while it is made mostly out of metal, and it has some sort of rubber-like material on the back in order to be more grippy. This smartphone comes with two vertically-aligned cameras on the back, while it has a side-facing fingerprint scanner. The phone includes a 5,500mAh battery on the inside, which is one of its main selling points. Facial scanning is also included in the package, and the same can be said for an NFC chip.

A 5-megapixel camera sits on the front side of the device, while the phone ships with two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM), and we're looking at a hybrid setup here, which means that you can use one of those SIM card slots in order to insert a microSD card, and expand the phone's storage.
