Boasting of a Metal and Plastic mix design and covered exquisitely with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has all the IP65/IP68 certifications, offering dust, scratch and water resistant of up to 30 minutes underneath.
We can see the dual shooters in their unique position just like on its predecessors. The dual-LED flash is on top of vertical cameras in that order. It’s quite bulky to the sides as usual measuring 11.9mm in thickness and weighs 236g. You should be able to get it in Black and Silver colors only.
