Hisense has launched its latest addition to the smartphone market, the Hisense MAXE X1 phablet.
The MAXE X1 has the sophistication of a sleek and trendy phone but the dimensions and display quality of a tablet. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
This model is bigger than the average smartphone, and often recognised as a phablet due to its high-definition capabilities and size of 6.8″, which is surprisingly not as bulky as one may think.
The phablet’s good shooting quality with dual cameras stems from its 5.0 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13.0 megapixel back camera. It also includes a blue glass-light filter in the back camera which enhances the picture quality.
The phablet comes with a remote that looks similar to an old version of a cell phone, however it is in fact a Bluetooth device with a dial-pad. It also lists music and messaging features, and a small screen that displays messages.
Deputy General Manager of Hisense South Africa, Ebrahim Khan added, “Since launching the Hisense Prime 1 phone last year, Hisense has aggressively targeted the smartphone segment in South Africa in full force by releasing a mid-level device called the Hisense Infinity Pure 1, soon after. Taking it up a notch, the Hisense MAXE X1 phablet is now being launched and is correctly on par with many competing brands in the country.
In summary, the Hisense MAXE X1 phablet key features include:
¬∑ Android 4.4 KitKat OS
