The devices do not feature an earpiece, instead it vibrates the screen using Screen SoundCasting Technology which promise better bass and softer treble.  Device front camera will pop-up automatically and hides when the camera app is opened and closed. This is achieved by using extremely precise micro-stepping motors, with independent drive ICs and precision control algorithms.
