It has been known since quite sometime now that HTC is working on a 5-inch Android handset with 1080p resolution. The specs of the handset was leaked by XDA developer, Football, a couple of weeks ago.
Today, the folks over at Android Central got their hands on some pictures of the handset thanks to one of their source. The picture clearly shows the Verizon branding on the phone, with the DLX having the same styling clues as the DROID Incredible series.
The Android Central source also sent a picture of the handset’s About device page that confirmed the specs of this monster – a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Krait SoC, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and a non-removable 2500mAh. The lack of a microSD card slot and a non-removable 2500mAh battery might be a disappointment for many and turn out to be eventual deal-breaker. Hopefully, HTC will release a 32GB variant of the handset as well.
On the software side, the DLX will be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ on top of it. There is no word as to when HTC and Verizon will be announcing the DLX, but it should be out around thanksgiving.
