Additionally, there is a 0.3 MP front-facing camera lens located above the display to the left of the earpiece, just opposite to the side where buttons are located. The earpiece is located in the center, on the top. To the right of the earpiece is the proximity sensor.

The left side of the device is kept clean.

With a weight of just 140 grams and a comparatively smaller screen size, the device is easy to hold carry. And a price of just ₹6,999 ($105 approx.) for 3,000 mAh battery juice makes it a good buy.

The box contains the smartphone, along with a travel adaptor, a data cable, a user manual, a warranty card, a silicon back cover, a screen guard and a pair of earphones.
