– A 4.65″ 1280×720 HD Super AMOLED display with a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and 16:9 aspect ratio (that’s 316ppi vs. 326ppi on the iPhone 4/4S)

– A 1.2″ GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM

– LTE or HSPA+ connectivity

– A contour display (like the Nexus S) with an ultra-thin bezel

– Barometer for weather features

– NFC support

– WiFi b/g/n

– 1750mAh battery

– Hyperskin anti-slip coating

– Hidden notification LED
