Just like the designs mentioned above, by the looksof things this device does not have a front-facing camera. The back end of the device houses a secondary display which is about half in size when compared to the screen size at the front.Moving on, the secondary display is placed on the top part of the back panel which allows users to hold the smartphone just like they would hold any other device, without causing causing in problem.
