Huawei Ascend GX1 officially announced, has an 80.5% screen to body ratio

Huawei Ascend GX1 officially announced, has an 80.5% screen to body ratio
Huawei today officially announced and launched the Ascend GX1, a brand new, extra-large Android handset that was first spotted last week.

The GX1 can now be purchased in China, where it costs about $255 (1590 CNY), and we assume that Huawei will release it in other markets in the near future. What is the new handset offering for that kind of money? Quite a lot, especially when it comes to screen size.

Sporting a 6-inch 720p IPS display, the Huawei Ascend GX1 has a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5%, resembling the high-end Ascend Mate7 in this regard. The GX1 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. It’s got LTE, NFC, dual SIM capabilities, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. Moreover, there’s 8 GB of expandable storage space on board, plus 1 GB of RAM. The new smartphone measures 161 x 84.5 x 9.2 mm, weighs 173 grams, and comes with a pretty large 3500 mAh battery.

Huawei is selling the GX1 in China via its own online store (see the source link below), and it looks like for now it’s offering only a white version of it. What do you think, is this a good buy for $255?
