This handset uses a microSIM card slot and it comes with a small metal key inside the box, so you can access the SIM slot. This smartphone measures 8.5 mm in thickness and weighs 145 grams. Its box includes the charger, a very handsome looking pair of headphones, ear plugs and USB cable. The screen on the handset is a True HD IPS+ LCD, that looks great and offers a 4.7 inch diagonal and a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution.

It’s got Gorilla Glass 2 protection and there’s also Dolby Audio technology on board.
