Huawei unveiled a new smartphone just last week with the Honor 6 Plus, but today the company is back with an even bigger device. The Ascend GX1 is a 6-inch mid-range phablet at an impressively low price.

The Ascend GX1 packs a 6-inch 720p display, Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor, a 3500mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with microSD support up to 32GB, and runs Android 4.4 with the company’s own software on top. Huawei also included dual-SIM card slots with LTE support.

From a design perspective the new phablet looks thin and sleek, with a simple plastic design. It also packs some impressively thin bezels considering its massive size.

You can pick up the GX1 for just ¥ 1590.00 (roughly $255) in China, where it’s available straight from Huawei’s own online store. It’s unclear if the company has any plans to expand beyond its home country, though we’re not expecting to see this device hit the U.S. anytime soon.
