The back panel of the phone is made of glass as the front panel which has a 2.5D glass and a metal frame is in between them. There are two cameras on both sides with proximity and lighting sensors. There is also a speaker and a LED flash. The phone is will be available in three colors- black, blue and gold. There is an adapter with USB Type-C and an adapter for OTG connection too with other familiar accessories but the 3.5 mm headphone jack is missing. So you have to deal with that but the company is providing the USD to 3.5mm Jack output cable that might be helpful for you.
