HX-1 Device Overview

The HX-1 features a large 7-inch multi-touch screen with a bright 1024×600 pixel display, which is reinforced with a tempered glass screen protector for added durability. A powerful 1GB RAM makes the HX-1 impressively fast, while a 5000mAh battery will keep you exploring for up to 6 hours off charge with continuous use. On the reverse is a 5-megapixel camera, which allows you to capture your adventure with geotagged photos and video up to 480p at 15 frames per second. Meanwhile, the HX-1’s Wi-Fi connectivity makes downloading additional maps, content and device updates quick and easy, so you can spend less time indoors and more time exploring off the beaten track.
