From the earliest days of the appearance at the market, the models of the 600-th series belonged to the middle segment. Frames have begun to shrink after the rapid development of phones based on Android. Becoming the most popular platform, Android began to dictate the conditions that smartphones based on Windows had to be considered with. For this the developers had to be seriously engaged in the development and production of budget phones.

Under the back cover you can be found the microSD card and “SIM card” slots. The most popular is the DUAL-SIM version of this smartphone.


As a display the developers used the IPS-matrix with 854×480 resolution, 221 ppi. Some of the points are allocated to the classic windows-buttons on the screen. ClearBlack is used for screen technology, which is “struggling” with the fading of the display under the sun. As a protection, Gorilla Glass 3 is applied.
