The front of the smartphone is mostly occupied by the touch panel and lacks any branding or logo. There is no secondary camera or whatsoever apart from the speaker grill on the top.

On flipping the device you will notice the unique camera unit which when lifted from the slot doubles up as the secondary camera or the front facing camera for the user. There is Honor branding in the middle of the phone. on the top there is 3.5 mm headphone jack and on the bottom USB charging port. The power button and the Volume rocker is placed on the right side of the panel.
