Rumor: HTC working on 5-inch 1794 x 1080 display phablet set to debut this fall
Writing about rumored handsets is always exciting, but we get a little giddy when new handsets pop up on our radar which have potential change the way HTC competes in the smartphone market. According to industry sources, HTC is working on a new device which will debut this fall – featuring a 5-inch 1794 x 1080 display with a mind boggling pixel density of 418 PPI. To put that inter perspective, this new 5-inch display features a 34% PPI increase over the HTC One X and even a 26% PPI increase over Apple’s fabled Retina Display on the iPhone 4.
To make things even better, the rumored device matches up with benchmark scores which were posted to the web a few week ago for the mysterious HTC 6435LVW. Powered by Qualcomm’s MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 SoC, the HTC 6435LVW featured benchmark scores which nearly doubled those of the HTC One X, leaving some to speculate that it could be the first handset to hit the market with the more powerful Adreno 320 GPU.
While HTC did promise to cut back on the number of devices it would focus on in 2012, we doubt any of you are going to complain when you first lay eyes on the 5-inch full HD display. Now all we need to know is if HTC will be including an Active Pen and HTC Scribe which would allow the device to compete directly with the Samsung Galaxy Note.
