The world's first 6.5-inch phablet coming to China in June

If you’re a fan of big phones aka phablets, you may be glad to know that a little known company from China called Actwell is looking to yet again redefine what a big smartphone means.

The Huawei Ascend Mate has a 6.1-inch screen, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 – 6.3-inch one and the forthcoming Actwell i6000 will hit the 6.5-inch mark. That screen will naturally support full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution, while boasting a hardware powerful enough to deliver a smooth user experience. Yup, it will rock a quad-core processor (though one made by MediaTek), as well as a 13-megapixel rear camera, 3-megapixel front-facing one, dual-SIM support, solid 3,140mAh battery, with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running the show right from the get-go.

Interested Chinese will be able to get the Actwell i6000 at some point in June, while those of us living in other parts of the world may never get to try it out. Not that we’re sorry or something — personally I don’t like the whole phablet category — it’s just that we like to see more options on the market. Alas, you’ll still be able to get Actwell’s baby from importers and places like Alibaba…
