Other components are equally outstanding: 5-inch IPS display (full HD at 16:9), 13 MP camera with dual-LED flash, and 3050mAh lithium ion polymer battery. It is only 8.1 mm thin, 145 grams light, and houses an alumium-magnesium alloy frame, coated with 3 layers of thermal graphite. It is published on Sep 5th, 2013 in Mainland China, and went on sale on Mar 7th, 2014 in Singapore (only for S$419).
