The resolution of the screen is 1480 x 720 which translates into a 16:9 aspect ratio and there is a sheet of Gorilla Glass 6 over it. For the back panel, the phone has textured plastic with corners that are reinforced to absorb shocks from falls.

The phone also has Bluetooth 5.0, support for 5GHz Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, USB-C, and an audio jack. This is a rugged phone, so it has an IP68 waterproof rating and is MIL-STD 810G certified.
