The M-Horse Pure 1 has a full metal body design and it is available on four colour options – Black, Gold, Gray and Blue – for buyers to choose from. Black being my favourite. The metal body build as well as the lightweight nature of the device goes a long way in conferring a premium appearance on the M-Horse Pure 1.
The above image is a picture showing how the rear of the Pure 1 looks like… and it’s pretty much eye-catching. The dual camera can be spotted in the middle at the top of the device with the dual LED flash and fingerprint scanner flanked to it’s left and right respectively. The position of the fingerprint sensor on this device is similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and this may result in users blurring out the lens of the camera when trying to unlock via fingerprint.
With the Pure 1, M-Horse jumps on the 18:9 aspect ratio bandwagon and really, it’s amazing. You get a device with a wider and bigger display without an increase in overall device size.
The glass covering on the M-Horse Pure 1 is slightly curved on both edges and has minimal bezels. The display is a 5.7 inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution and 282 ppi pixel density. If you are a movie lover, this display will give the best of visual and movie experience. Or perhaps you enjoy reading PDF files and eBooks on your smartphone, the M-Horse Pure 1 will also get that beautifully done.

Like I mentioned earlier, there is a dual lens set-up on the rear of the M-Horse Pure 1. The lenses are of 8-megapixels and 2-megapixels quality respectively. Likewise, there are dual LED flash for subject brightening, especially during the night.
There is a 4,380mAh battery built in the M-Horse Pure 1.
