Some of the latest rumors around the web suggested that Taiwanese phone maker HTC might be set to launch an Android-based device boasting a 5-inch display, yet nothing has been officially confirmed on the matter for the time being.However, enthusiasts continue to dream of said device, and some even came up with their own visions of what that smartphone might be looking like.
One enthusiast, Tyler Lehmann, came up with a 5-inch concept phone called HTC One Z (via concept-phones). The same as the rumored smartphone, it packs a quad-core CPU inside, and can deliver a 720p resolution.
The quad-core Tegra 3 processor packed inside this phone is said to be clocked at 1.8GHz, which should deliver an important performance boost when compared to the current generation of Tegra 3-based handsets.
The handset also sports 2GB of RAM, along with a 2800 mAh non removable battery, as well as an anodized aluminum and polycarbonate case for more appealing looks.
The phone’s screen is edge to edge, which gives it a different feel that current devices. Additionally, there is an 8-megapixel photo snapper placed on the back of the device, most probably featuring the latest technology currently available in the field.
The handset could very well pack Beats Audio technology inside, the same as many of HTC’s latest smartphones, along with the entire series of sensors and connectivity options that today’s high-end smartphones come to the market with.
Overall, the handset looks highly appealing, as can be seen both in the photos attached to this article, as well as in the video embedded at the bottom.
Provided that HTC is indeed set to bring the 5-inch phablet to the market, we could expect it to look similar to this HTC One Z concept phone. For the time being, however, we can only dream about it.
