Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is expected to bring to the market its own smartphone that packs a 5-inch display, and some more info on the device is now available.
The smartphone has already been spotted online with model number HTC 6435LVW attached to it, and it even made it in a series of benchmarks, but an official confirmation on it hasn’t emerged as of yet.
However, the guys over at HTC Source
suggest that the phone is as real as it can be, and that it will bring along all the features and capabilities you might have been waiting for.
First of all, we should note that the Android
phablet is said to be called DIx internally, though its market name is not known as of yet.
Since it is expected to arrive on shelves at Verizon, it might be included in the carrier’s DROID lineup, and it might even be called HTC DROID Incredible X (hence the DIx codename).
Although the phone was seen in a benchmark with a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor inside, the news site claims that it will hit shelves with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, and that it will also sport 1.5GB of RAM.
Moreover, the device
is said to sport a 1794 x 1080 pixel display with a pixel density of 480ppi (the aforementioned benchmark suggested that it would be a 418ppi display).
The HTC DIx phablet is also rumored to arrive on shelves with a non-removable battery inside, as well as with a microSD card slot to expand the available internal memory.
Since HTC hasn’t provided an official confirmation on this handset, we should take the above info with a grain of salt for the time being. However, even if not all of the features will pan out, we do expect for most of them to remain unchanged when the handset goes official.
The one thing that appears to be certain about this phone is that it is different than the HTC One X+
, which should sport an NVIDIA Tegra 3 Plus processor when launched later this year.
