The prevailing trend with mobile phones today is to make them bigger and this process is irreversible. We can find a variety of phablets with screens around 6 inches across diagonals. The major advantages of these models come in the way of convenience and practicability. Hisense yesterday presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona its new giant phablet called Hisense Maxe X1 4G. Fronted by a huge 6.8-inch screen, it combines a smartphone, tablet, TV and gaming console into a single device.
The 6.8-inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels while the phone is built around a Snapdragon 800 processor ticking over at 2.3 GHz. Maxe X1 4G runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat with Hisense custom UI on top. Other key specs include a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera allowing users to record full HD videos and enriched with several software goodies such as panoramic mode, cymera mode, burst shooting and more. The phone comes with Dolby 5.1 sound and noise-free microphones.
As far as the design, Hisense Maxe X1 4G feels just right in the hand as its thickest part is 9.2 mm. In addition, the Maxe X1 arrives with free NFC Mini Bluetooth allowing customers to receive calls, chat, send texts and more without touching the display. Users can transfer content from the phablet to a normal TV through a HDMI cable or wirelessly. Hisense Maxe X1 4G will reach markets within 30 days, but the company is yet to specify its price.
