Hisense previewed the MAXE X1 at CES 2014 and finally released the 6.8-inch phablet at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this week. More than just a 4G phablet with a very generous screen size, the Hisense MAXE X1 "is the only smartphone to combine features of a handset, a tablet, a TV, and a set-top box into one mobile device."  

These are the main specs and features of this unique Android KitKat device:

  • Processor: quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB of RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Display: 6.8-inch Full HD multi-touch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Camera: 13 MP back with 1080p video recording and panoramic, fast-burst and cymera modes
  • Audio: stereo front speakers, 5.1 Dolby virtual surround and three noise-canceling microphones
  • Connectivity: 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC
  • Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat

The 0.36-inch thin MAXE X1 comes with a 0.04-pound NFC-enabled MINI Bluetooth phone which allows to easily receive calls, send and receive SMS or swipe subway and buss passes. The handset is also able to provide smart TV functionality, supporting WFD, DLAN, Hisense Sharing and more. 

The Hisense MAXE X1 will hit the stores worldwide "within one month," according to the press release which you can check below. Unfortunately, pricing is still unknown for now, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
