This handset is made out of metal and glass, and as you can see, it has two separate display camera holes in the top-left corner. This is not exactly the most popular design choice, but Motorola opted for it.

The phone does have thin bezels, though its bottom bezel is noticeably thicker than the rest. Its display is flat, while a fingerprint scanner is located on the right. There are three cameras placed on the back, we’ll talk about those in a second.
