Design & Display 

The smartphone, built in plastic mix material comes out in Black and Gold color options. The thickness being 9.4 mm meets up properly with the 145 mm length and 72 mm width. The curved nature of the smarphone’s edges and the smooth rear act as mini definitions of the smartphone’s beauty. The fingerprint sensor graces the rear alongside a camera, LED flash and BLU logo. The speaker grille also appears at the rear while the volume and power buttons show up on the right hand side. At the front, the top bezel houses the front camera, LED flash and earpiece while the bottom bezel contains the BLU logo.
