The slim, 15.6 mm-thick body of the WX330K incorporates an antenna. While its outline is simple, the model is finished with close attention to the details of high-quality design. For example, it comes with different textures, each optimized the main body color which adds a touch of class to the design of each handset. The shiny quality is created by the glittery surface for the Onyx Black and Pearl White, and by the pearl-like coating for the Tourmaline Pink. The handsets are also individualized through the use of different colors for the metallic parts - silver for the Pearl White, brown for the Onyx Black, and gold for the Tourmaline Pink.
