Around the edges, the corners curve down towards the bottom. Here, we find a well-placed volume rocker and solid power button with a quick response when pressed. The glass encompasses a majority of the phone making it slim and nice to gaze at, which is further amplified by the 9.5mm thickness of the device and its weight of 225g making it light to the touch.
The shell of the phone is made out of metal and is coated in a variety of several color variants ranging from blue, black and silver. At the back of the device, the metallic body frame effortlessly wraps with the dual rear camera and high sensitivity fingerprint scanner giving it a premium feel.
