The microUSB port is located at the bottom of the device with the audio jack located at the top of the device. The power and volume keys were located on the right side of device.

The device's display is larger than its predecessor, with a 4.3-inch, 720p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of ~342ppi, and Dragontrail glass.
