In addition, the company also introduced a new way of presenting the antenna lines to ensure strong signals. The thick white bands that traverse the back of most phones have been replaced with two sets of three ultra-fine lines, measuring 0.3mm. They call it the “six-string” antenna design, which looks unique.
