Huawei on Monday launched its latest phablet, the Ascend GX1, in China at CNY 1590 (approximately Rs. 16,000).

The White colour variant of the Huawei Ascend GX1 is up for purchase via company's online store, and it is not yet known if the smartphone comes in other colour options or not, and more importantly, if Huawei will release it to other markets as well.

The Ascend GX1 is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor clocked at 1.2GHz, coupled with 1GB of RAM. It features an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The 8GB internal storage on the device is expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB).

Connectivity options on the Ascend GX1 include 4G LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and GPS/ A-GPS. The handset is backed by 3500mAh battery, which is rated to deliver a dual-SIM standby time of up to 198 hours. The Huawei Ascend GX1 measures 161x84.5x9.2mm, and weighs 173 grams.
