This time, the company has added a special plain leather version. It has a leather texture and stitching design similar to car interiors. This variant comes in a neutral blue-purple tone, with both tough lines and a comfortable feel. The plain skin itself uses a glass fiber substrate. The thickness is effectively reduced (8.79mm). So it is almost equivalent to the glass version (8.59mm).
