Ulefone is a full-screen device with narrow bezel and unique screen size. Most of the screens are either 6 inch or 5.7 inches long that makes the devices difficult to handle with a single hand. Ulefone S8 supports a one glass solution display with 5.3-inch length, 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and a density of 277 PPI.

The back of the mobile has a dual-camera with dual-LED flash along with a fingerprint scanner. There is a small slit present in the lower end that helps in removing the panel. It has a dual SIM card slot along with an SD card slot positioned over one of those slots.
