Front covered with glass and a 4.3 inch touch screen, and a back with a fine finish with a silver line running across the front and back of the phone makes it look more beautiful than ever. The phone is a reasonably slim and small size with dimensions of 128 x 64 x 10.6mm and a weight of 114 grams.
