Large Android devices are all the rage now and the Chinese company Actwell is “acting well” on that trend, by launching the MT6577 phablet with Jelly Bean. This model has a huge 5.7 inch 1280 x 720 display and it also has a phone feature.


This product is intended for OEM buyers, so expect to see it rebranded all over Europe for example. What we know about it is that it packs a dual core MT6577 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a dual SIM dual standby microSD card reader. There’s also a huge 3200 mAh battery on board. The device measures 9.7 mm in thickness, packs Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi and 3G among its specs, but the connectivity bands are not known right now.

It’s very interesting that the battery has that generic “Android” branding on it and also I find the device to be pretty similar in design with the Galaxy Note II. The screen seems to be pretty bright and the experience looks like the stock one for Android, without any customizations. Expect a price tag of around $200 to $300 for this model.
