Rumors have been floating around on the Internet for quite sometime now that HTC is working on a Galaxy Note competitor with a 5-inch 1080p screen resolution. Reports suggested that the screen of the device, which is apparently manufactured by Sharp, recently went into production.
Today, Football, a very popular HTC custom ROM developer and known for his RUU leaks, has revealed the full specs of this 5-inch device from HTC. The HTC DLX (DROID Incredible X?) will be powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor,and an Adreno 320 GPU. There will also be 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage space, a 12MP snapper at the back and a 2MP camera in the front. . He did not mention anything about a microSD card slot, and given HTC’s recent hatred towards them, don’t be surprised if the device lacks one.
The device will be powered by a 2500mAh non-removable battery. From the leaks and its name, it is clear that the DLX will be arriving first on Verizon’s network by the end of this year. It was just a year ago that phones with 720p screens were released into the market by Samsung and HTC. A year later, and we are looking at screens with Full HD resolution!
It will be interesting to see if HTC spins the European version of the DLX into a Nexus device or not, like LG is going to do with its Optimus G handset.
