The Huawei Ascend GX1 smartphone has been officially launched not long after it made its appearance at the TENAA certification website in China. The new handset is a pretty huge one at 6 inches and it’s on sale in China for CNY1590 which would be around Rs 16200 in India.
For its size and retail tag, you get a 720p HD IPS display surrounded by extremely thin bezels. The company notes that the Huawei Ascend GX1 offers a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5% which is pretty impressive. Also, there are no physical navigation buttons here as the company has opted for virtual on-screen ones.
The display is accompanied by a 2MP camera, while the rear panel flaunts an 8MP snapper and LED flash surrounded by a textured design. Coming to the main hardware, the Huawei device gains steam from a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 SOC with 64-bit support and it packs a mere 1GB of RAM.
And for storage, there’s a basic 8GB internal memory with a 32GB compatible microSD card port. You also get treated to dual SIM slots with support for HSPA+ and LTE networks and surprisingly, the company has thrown in NFC as well. Considering the phone’s size, the 3500mAh battery should do a good job of keeping it powered up for an entire day.
Here’s a roundup of the Huawei Ascend GX1 specs:
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
