The device has a pretty attractive aesthetic and both the front and back reeks beauty. At the rear, there is fingerprint sensor and right below it, there’s the KFC logo (a Colonel Sanders sketch) and “1987” scribbled below the logo. Moving closer to the bottom of the device also reveals the Huawei logo and the loud-speaker.
