On the front panel, also in the left side, there’s the 8MP selfie camera with a LED flash.
Its screen has a diagonal of 5.2-inch, being a full HD 2.5D curved display that gives a pixel density of 424ppi, and on top of it runs Emotion UI 4.1. Underneath, Android 6.0 Marshmallow does its job perfectly, so you have Google’s new features such as Doze battery saver, Google Now on Tap or app permissions.
