The device was designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, with its 2.75mm extremely narrow edges and 0.6mm Ultra-slim Chamfer. The Neffos X1 is a thin device and even more exquisite and stylish thanks to the CNC technique. The rear camera was placed horizontally with the fingerprint sensor at the back, for easy access.
