The front of the SmartVision3 is separated into 2 distinct parts: The 3.5-inch touch screen display at the top, and a real physical keypad at the bottom. Just above the display is a speaker and a camera for video calls. Below the display is a real physical keypad, which is divided into two distinct sections: the first section is the navigation pad located directly below the display. It is easy to identify because of its joystick in the shape of a rounded square. To the left of the central joystick are the “Home” and “Menu” keys, respectively one above the other. To the right of the central joystick is the “Back” key and the “Delete” key, respectively one above the other.
The second part of the physical keyboard is the alphanumeric keypad composed of 12 keys (4 lines of 3 keys). To help orient the user, an ergonomic raised dot is on the 5 key.
The top edge of the phone includes a 3.5 mm audio jack for connecting headphones, and the On/Off button. The right edge of the phone includes the voice command button, which is textured to identify easily. Just below the voice command button are the volume keys. The bottom edge of the phone includes the USB type C connector for charging, and the phone’s microphone. To the right of the microphone is the main speaker for media and voice synthesis. The left edge of the phone includes the SIM tray. The back of the device includes a camera and fingerprint sensor.
