The smartphone also has horizontally placed dual rear cameras along with a secondary screen. When opened, a large screen with thin bezels welcomes you. There is also a dual front camera setup in the upper left corner of the screen. On the right side of the phone are the volume up and down and the power button. On the other hand, there will also be a speaker grille at the bottom and a USB Type-C port.
