Design and Display

As entry-level as it sounds, the device display this in its architecture. With a plastic body material, the device lets out a basic feel that’s more or less unsurprising. Bezels on the smartphone are thick, so there’s no chance of a bezel-less display. On the bottom bezel of the device, the soft Android navigation keys are in place while a single camera and earpiece dominate the top region. Here’s the nice part: colour variations of the device are Moroccan Blue, Terra Gold and Aurora Black. This leaves interested buyers with cool colour options to select from. For security to be more accurate, the device features a fingerprint sensor which is mounted at the back.

Viewing space for media on the smartphone is an average 5.0 inches IPS touchscreen. The touchscreen revels in a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Also on the display is the In-Cell touch support and 294 PPI.
