Encased in glass, which is made from fifteen layers of craftsmanship process on the back, the handset’s sleek 5.2 inch design has a matchless finish. Within the layers are lithography and 3D grating coatings that come together to create lots of fine prism lines. Although invisible to the human eye, these generate bright colors for a stunning visual experience.
Due to its 2.5D curves, the glass fits seamlessly into a diamond-cut metal frame making the device exceptional to hold, and acts as a protective layer against occasional drops and rough handling.

The two sensors also enable photographers to utilize a range of filters, from setting focus after the shot to changing the appearance of the Bokeh effect.

Perfect every photo or finesse video content with a whole host of editing tools to make the content stand-out.
