The phone has three color options – Arctic White, Night Black, Deep Ocean Blue.
On the design side, the phone has an appealing glass design at the back. The body has a gradient finish sporting a curved-rectangular camera module at the top of its left corner. At the front, the device has a circular notch where it flaunts its selfie shooter. The phone has a sleek body that weighs 196g and is just 7.8mm thick, hence is comfortable to hold. The LED light is spotted at the top in the same camera hump. It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Performance and Memory

The selfie shooter can record 1080p at 30fps videos and 720p at 120 fps videos. It is disappointing to see even having powerful specifications it could not pull 4K at 60 fps.
