Huawei has lifted the lid on the Ascend GX1, a 6-inch affordable Android-powered phablet the boasts a screen to body ratio of 80.5%.
The Ascend GX1 is available in China for 1,590 CNY, which is a little bit over £160. Huawei is yet to announce if the device will be available in other markets.
Now lets talk about the smartphone’s specs. The GX1 sports a 6-inch IPS 720p screen with a screen to body ratio of 80.5% (meaning more screen and less bezel), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, dual SIM card slots, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 3,500 mAh battery. The GX1 measures 161 x 84.5 x 9.2 mm and weighs in at 173 grams. Currently, only one colour option is being sold in China – white. Unfortunately, the device runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) out of the box and not the latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop). We’re guessing a Lollipop update will be available for the device in the near future.
