Even though it has a Plastic body, there’s an aluminium frame around it, giving it a sleek and attractive look. There’s an iPhone X-like dual shooters at the top left corner, but the LED flash is now under the dual shooters instead of being in the middle.
The fingerprint scanner is in its usual position for quick access to the device, with the BQ logo underneath. While the “Android One” logo is at the bottom corner. Turning to the sides, the volume keys and power button sits by the right and the SIM tray is at the left. It’s available in only Carbon Black and Sand Gold colors.

The 5.65-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen displays stunning visuals. The screen boasts of 1080 x 2160 pixels in resolution and 427 pixel per inch density, bringing out the details on the screen really nicely. Apart from dishing out an 18:9 ratio, it stretches up to 75.6% screen to body ratio as well.
