The back of both colors is inspired by the concept of starlight. A double texture was created in order to create a special effect that’s reminiscent of stars shining. For craftsmanship, the phone went through 12 processes with 7 layers of a 300nm nano-optical coating plus a drench-coating highlighting process to create the starlight texture with high precision.

The phone was made to be slim at 7.64mm with the battery’s thickness being only at 4.4mm even at 5000mAh. It’s also lightweight even with a large battery capacity at only 185 grams.

The camera module’s plate was made with polycarbonate & 10% glass fiber with a vacuum-plated high-gloss process. The halo rings are made with PMMA+PC with a 150nm (Starlight Black) or 300nm (Starlight Purple) coating for the 3D flash effect that’s seen on the camera module.

The phone’s also designed with a “right angle” in mind allowing the phone to stand on its own – paired with curved edges that make the device comfortable and easy to hold.
