During the Mobile World Congress being held in Spain this week, Hisense revealed a new large-screen handset, the Maxe X1. The mobile device combines the functionality of a smartphone with the display size of a tablet and the connectivity options of a set-top box.

The Maxe X1 features a 6.8-inch 1080p display and is powered by a Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core CPU. In addition, the smartphone includes a 13MP rear camera that is capable of full HD video recording, a panoramic mode, and burst shooting options. The phone runs Android 4.4 and also features two front stereo speakers with Dolby Digital 5.1 virtual surround sound and three noise cancelling microphones. Finally, smart TV features are integrated as well with wired and wireless media sharing options that allow users to watch content from the phone on their televisions.

Exact pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but the Hisense Maxe X1 is expected to launch globally next month with a US release planned for the near future.
