Upcoming Huawei Ascend GX1 phablet gets certified in China [specs, images]

It was only last week that Huawei revealed two new very attractive smartphones and it could be launching a new device soon as the Ascend GX1 just got certified in China. The upcoming handset is yet another phablet from the company and it has quite a decent roster of features.

The Huawei Ascend GX1 has been revealed online by none other than China’s TENAA which is the country’s equivalent to the FCC. What it does is makes all known information and images available to the public and this has led to many devices getting revealed ahead of their launch. The upcoming Huawei handset will fall in the 6-inch category and offer mid-range specs.

Design-wise, there’s nothing to write home about, but what’s worth mentioning is that the handset doesn’t appear to have capacitive hardware navigation keys and there are slim bezels surrounding the display as well. As you’d expect, a 720p HD IPS display is placed on the front and a 2MP camera is also present.
