With such design, a lot of changing and chopping needs to be done and the positioning of sensors on the phone had been re-adjusted altogether. The proximity sensor has been replaced by ultrasound sensor, the earpiece has been replaced with a piezoelectric acoustic speaker that uses the metal frame to generate sound, and the front-facing camera is relocated to the chin of the phone.
