The left side panel houses the volume control buttons, while the right side has the power button. The bottom has the charging slot as well as a 3.5mm jack, and the top is bald and smooth. The front panel has the 5.7 inch display. Above the display is the speaker and front camera module, below it is the fingerprint sensor embedded in the physical home button, along with two capacitive touch buttons that are backlit.
