The 6.8-inch screen definitely puts the Maxe X1 smartphone into the phablet realm. In fact, the screen is so large that Hisense ships it with an NFC enabled Bluetooth mini phone that weighs 20 grams. That mini phone can be used to answer and end calls.

It can also be used to send and receive SMS messages and can be used as a swiped bus or subway pass. The phone has full HD resolution on the big screen. It runs a Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.3 GHz. The OS is Android 4.4 KitKat with a custom UI over the top.

The device also has a 13MP rear camera that will record full HD resolution video. The dual front stereo speakers support Dolby 5.1 virtual surround sound. The phone also has a trio of microphones and can stream content to TVs wirelessly and via cables. Pricing for the Maxe X1 is unknown.
