Huawei has officially launched the Ascend GX1, a 6-inch Android phablet that was spotted last week. The GX1, as of now, can be purchased in China, for 1590 CNY ($255/Rs 16000 approx.), and we hope that Huawei will soon be releasing the phone in international market too. The device can be purchased in China via Huawei’s own online store, and the phone is available in white color only.

The device comes with a 6-inch 720p IPS display, with 80.5% of screen-to-body ratio which is highly similar to the Ascend Mate 7. The GX1 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top, and is powered by a 1.2GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor coupled with a 1GB of RAM.

What is your take on this latest offering by Huawei? The phone seems fine but we would say that there are better options at such price. Manufactures like Xiaomi and Meizu provide better mid-range phones in much lesser price than Huawei Ascend GX1. However, It will be interesting to see how well this device performs in the market.
