This panel is designed by utilizing the G2 Zerogap Touch technology and it proffers a pixel density of 320ppi as well as 550nits of brightness. For enhanced protection, the front and rear are coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The flip side also plays house to a 13MP AF with LED flash, while a 1.3MP webcam is situated just above the display. From the inside, a SIo+ 2,100mAh battery is hard at work to deliver 15 hours of talktime or 335 hours of standby.
