The phone comes with 6.5 inches of FHD+ display that has a refresh rate of 90Hz and a 1,080* 2,400-pixel resolution. The phone has a thickness of 9.56mm which is comparatively thick than the phone of the same category. Also, it weighs around 192 grams; it may be difficult to fit in your pockets as this is a huge phone.

The 90Hz display can be very unique, given there are not many smartphones in the market in this price category that provides a 90Hz display feature. Also, the display on the phone has an adaptive refresh rate which means the phone will automatically switch its refresh rates between the apps.
