The handset features large thick bezels on the display that take us back to old times. It has a polycarbonate frame and a back with a nano-texture. There’s also IP52 waterproofing.

In the camera department, there’s a 2 MP front-facing camera and a single 5 MP camera on the rear with LED flash.

Fueling the smartphone is a relatively large 3,000mAh battery that should be enough to power the phone for a full day. The battery is removable so you can always swap it with a new one if the juice runs out.
