Novelty is equipped with frameless 6.4-inch display, the ratio of the display to the body is very high – 91.3% (compared to the iPhone 7 Plus it is 67.7%), not to take up too much space on the touch buttons abandoned in favor of on-screen, and the screen is made more elongated , given its key aspect ratio 17: 9.

The edges of the display made rounded to minimize the screen frame. The following two slides to explain how such a move affect the size of the framework.

On the top panel there are no proximity sensor and mesh earpiece, that sound meets piezoelectric speakers. If I understand correctly, the sound will be created with the help of screen vibration. As for the sensor, it is only now entered into the screen.

The front camera is located under the screen, this move probably assembled from Sharp. The module itself has become 50% smaller, not to strongly influence the dimensions. Also, the camera is able to turn the image 180 degrees, if you shoot selfie upside down.
