Just a few hours back we saw the upcoming Huawei Ascend GX1 in pictures. But apart from the leaked images, we had little information about the specifications of the device.
Now, the same phone (model no. SC-CL00) has hit TENAA, which means we have lots more details about the tech specs as well as images of the device. Like we predicted, the phone does feature a large 6-inch display. However, the resolution is just HD, which is certainly a disappointment considering its monster size. Once again like we said earlier, the device is larger than the Mate 7 despite having the same display. It measures 161 × 84.5 × 9.55mm which is much bigger as well as thicker than the Mate 7 which measures 157 x 81 x 7.9 mm. As for the hardware, the Ascend GX1 comes with a quad-core 1.4GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage which supports external MicroSD card slots. There’s an 8MP camera at the back along with a 2MP front shooter. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. As far as we know, the phone supports GSM/CDMA 1X/CDMA2000/LTE FDD/TD-LTE networks.
Judging from the specs, you would have known by now that the phone is a mid-ranger. It’s priced at 1590 Yuan which comes to around $255. This is a great price since you don’t have many 6-inch phones in this range.
The phone is currently listed at gome.com.cn but the complete details have not yet been filled. Check out the listing here.
Since the Huawei Ascend GX1 has now hit TENAA, and also listed online, we expect a launch pretty soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
