The Android phone owners are known for their weakness for bigger and brighter handsets. The manufacturer benefiting the most from this addiction to own a big phone is Samsung as they released the first phablet on Android. Now, we have HTC One Max, Sony Z Ultra and LG G2 Pro, all offering display more than your palm can handle.
Today, the race to bring the larger and brighter handset took a significant turn as a Chinese brand called Hisense has released the biggest Android phone ever with a display measuring 6.8 inch. Now, comparing the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3, and 6.4-inch Z Ultra with Hisense X1 you will realize the massive screen we are talking about.
The Hisense X1 Android phone was unveiled at the CES by a Chinese company in Las Vegas. The huge 6.8-inch screen is full HD 1080p, and to make it last longer it has 3900 mAh battery. The X1 is almost as big as the Nexus 7 tablet and is surely not made to fit in an average pant pocket. The phone looks inspired by HTC One design as you will notice a metallic panel on both the top as well as the bottom, and rear side slightly curved.
The Hisense X1 Specs:
- OS: Android 4.3 with custom UI
- CPU: Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz
- Camera: 13MP, with 5MP front facing
- RAM: 2GB
- Storage: 16GB
- Battery: 3900 mAh
- 4G: Yes
The X1 specs are in line with Note 3 and HTC One Max, and performance wise it is just as fast as the rival phablets we mentioned above. The phone will be made available in more than one color as you can pick from matte black, glossier white grey, and metallic blue.
The company has not yet announced release date for buyers in US, but if you are in Asia, then you can certainly buy one in the coming months.
