Looks like the Camon X that was launched in Nigeria from the back. The design looks totally different from its predecessor especially from the camera and LED flash placement. They are now in a horizontal position instead of the vertical way. Nonetheless, it has a Plastic back cover with a Metal frame.

There’s still a fingerprint scanner even with the Face ID introduction. Turning over to the sides, the volume keys and power button sits by the right. There’s a USB charging port underneath and a 3.5mm jack on top. It measures 8.3mm in thickness and available in Champagne Gold and Black colors.

The Camon i Sky adopts the same screen on its predecessor, a bezel-less screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. You will still get the Full View experience with this smartphone. The selfie camera and its dedicated LED flash can be seem at the top bezel.

The 5.45-inch FWVGA+ IPS capacitive touchscreen is nothing to write home about compared to its predecessor. With a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels and 197 pixel per inch density, details might not be that great. Nonetheless, it stretches up to 73.6% screen to body ratio.
