At the top and bottom of the phone, you’ll find bezels that are as thick as the size of a pinkie finger. While the top bezel contains earpiece, camera, and proximity sensor; the base bezel house the “Honor” logo. The rear-placed fingerprint sensor can be easily reached by the index for touch ID.

A 5.7-inch IPS panel functions as the phone’s display. Its resolution is primed at 720 x 1520 pixels while its pixel density is pegged at 295ppi. More aesthetics is empowered through the 2.5D Curved glass screen.

The camera positioned at the top left corner of the back is made up of a 13MP lens. A single-LED flash is available to improve image quality in low light conditions. There’s also a 5MP shooter that captures images for Facebook and Instagram, although filters will make them more suitable.
