Sports a Plastic overall body that’s very comfortable to hold and operate. It weighs an astonishing 245g like most tablets but you won’t really notice because of its plastic body. The rear camera is at the top left corner with no LED flash whatsoever.

No fingerprint scanner? In 2018, if affordable smartphones are coming with the feature, then affordable tablets should follow suite. Moving to the sides, where the volume keys and power buttons are present. It measures 9.15 mm in thickness, which is pretty impressive to be honest. The device is available in only Black and Blue colors.
