Hisense X1 is a tabl…err… smartphone with a 6.8″ screen and Snapdragon 800!


The Hisense X1 will soon go on sale in China with a large 6.8-inch 1080p screen and an impressive specs sheet to boast!

The Hisense X1 is made to replace your smartphone and your tablet, all at once. The device features a larger-than-life (exaggeration, of course) 6.8-inch full HD screen and a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset to speak of. It impresses with 2GB of RAM, 4G connectivity (TD-LTE & FDD-LTE) and MHL all on board. Design is largely HTC inspired, but it saves itself from being called a clone thanks to the display size. Hisense has taken care of things; you won’t have to hold the device to your ear thanks to a Bluetooth headset that comes bundled.

Coming back to the specs sheet, the ‘phab-tablet’ also features a 13 mega-pixel rear and a 5 mega-pixel front shooter to take care of your photography and video calling requirements. Lastly, there’s a 3,900mAh unit on board which would supply juice to the device.

How long has it been since 7-inchers were called tablets? The Hisense X1 definitely makes it seem longer than it actually has been! The device will soon go on sale in China after an official showcase at the ongoing CES 2014.

    WooooW, 6.8 inches phone? Will it come in a pocket? Otherwise no doubt the specs are very good.

    width only 79mm??? hard to believe….

      Pythagoras says: Assuming 16:9 ratio the screen size alone should measure ~8.45 cm by 14.98 cm, therefore you are correct! (if we assume the width is indeed 79 mm then the total length must be wrong…)

      It simply can’t be a 6.8″ screen with these given dimensions!

      The given dimensions are either the size of the screen but not of the phone (and then the screen is indeed 6.8″) or else these are indeed the dimensions of the phone but the screen is smaller than 6.8″…

    What LTE does AT&T use in the USA?

    Most of these chinese phones are stated with TD-LTE & FDD-LTE. Does AT&T use one of those?

    According to http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks
    FDD LTE is the Europe standard.
