This Android-platform smartphone is ultra slim ˗ 5.9 mm thick ˗ with a big 5.7 inch screen, implementing an ultra slim bezel of 2.5 mm to improve screen immersion while maximizing compactness. The aluminum full metal unibody has an elaborate detail on the side and the space division design solution is used to provide a powerful grip while producing a solid and luxurious feel of the metal. The truncated elegant curve of the back side harmonized the excessive protrusion of the high-specification camera. The design moved away from the cold image of metal to create a warm, friendly and emotional design.
