So far we’ve seen two major leaks of a new HTC device, which appears to be a Galaxy Note competitor of some type with a 5-inch display. It first appeared in two blurry images, and then later in Verizon’s inventory as the HTC 6435 (or Dlx). Initial speculation said that the device would have a Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and possibly a 720p display. While some of those specs seem to be correct, more information has now come to light which provides a slightly more detailed picture of the device.
According to HTC Source, the Dlx will have not a 720p panel, but a 1080p 5-inch display, as well as 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of built in storage, and a Snapdragon S4 processor. The 1080p resolution in particular is quite impressive, and results in a whopping 480ppi, which handily beats the 326ppi of the iPhone 4S.
In addition to the specs, a supposed press render was also leaked which you can on the right. It may be an early render, but I’m quite skeptical of this image simply because it appears that someone has photoshopped and stretched out the One X‘s homescreen onto a modified red and black HTC smartphone body. However, it could still give some idea of what the device will look like in official form, even if it is neither final nor official.
All these rumors have me quite interested to see what HTC announces on the 19th (this Wednesday), so come the 19th, we will certainly have all the details right here. In the meantime, I’m interested in knowing if a 5-inch smartphone from HTC is something consumers are interested in, so feel free to leave your opinion in the comments.[Android and Me | Engadget]
