Coming to design part of the tablet, below 10,000 rupees price range every mobile manufacturer finds difficult to carve super body design for its flagship. Flipkart still has done lot to earn more points in design factor of its flagship. Body is 9.2mm thick and is made of plastic, resulting in slippery and shiny body of the tablet.

Front of the tablet is very simple but different from other tablets. Simple in terms, because it has similar huge 7-inch HD display on the centre and different in the terms of hardware placed above display. You can notice earpiece at top centre of the tablet and below earpiece has front camera hardware installed. Earpiece is place at the top edge which looks very attractive and front camera below that earpiece is something new to observe in tablet. Sensors like proximity and ambient are place besides front camera. Below display you won’t find any capacitive buttons as it is included in the screen like most of the Sony flagship.
Coming to the sides of the tablet left side has power button followed by volume rocker buttons whereas right side of the tablet is kept empty. Upper side consist of just 3.5mm audio jack while below consist of microUSB slot and mic for audio input. Back of the phone is very interesting and it is inspired by Apple iPhone 5 design.
