HTC Corporation and Verizon Wireless have been long rumored to plan the release of a new, large smartphone in the United States, and more info on that device is now available.
The handset, sporting the model number HTC 6435 and the codename of HTC DLX, has been spotted online a few times before, and is expected to hit shelves with a large 5.0-inch touchscreen display, as well as with a powerful processor packed inside.
Apparently, it will indeed do so, at least this is what benchmarking results from AnTuTu have unveiled.
Supposedly powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the mobile phone
managed to score 11,510 in AnTuTu, which should be good enough for a device that hasn’t yet reached shelves in a final form.
notes, Samsung’s Galaxy S III flagship handset, which sports a quad-core Exynos 1.4 GHz processor inside, can score around 12,000 in this benchmark, which shows that HTC’s upcoming device is quite powerful as well.
The HTC DLX has been previously said to be en-route to Verizon as the DROID Incredible X, which would make it the first handset at the wireless carrier to pack a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, provided that it is indeed powered by the new silicon.
Moreover, the 5-inch screen of this phone is said to be capable of delivering a full HD (1080p) resolution, another impressive feature that Big Red’s customers are bound to appreciate.
Running under the latest version of Google’s Android platform, the new device
will certainly prove a great competitor for a wide range of smartphones, including Motorola’s DROID series, as well as Samsung’s newly unveiled Galaxy Note II.
With this device, HTC makes its debut on the scene of larger handsets, where Samsung and LG are already competing for about a year or so. Unfortunately, no specific info on when HTC’s DLX will arrive on shelves has emerged, but stay tuned for more on the matter.
