The understated Matte Black colourway gives the phone a unique personality, with the distinctive patterning emblazoned on the back cover adding emphasis. The hardware specification of the Ultimate Edition has been upgraded to a massive 1TB UFS 3.0 ROM, and users can also enjoy faster Cat 20 4G LTE download speeds of up to 2Gbps.

They now also support both tap and slide motions — with fine-tuned feedback for a console-like button feel, and the Dual Surrounding Vibration technology creates a powerful 3D force-feedback experience. The unique side-mounted USB-C™ charging port and 3.5mm audio jack let users keep their phone topped up and their headphones plugged in. without cramping their style during marathon sessions.
