HTC’s leaky upcoming 5-inch smartphone (or phablet, if that naming suits you more) has had its most important specs leaked. Also, it looks like it’s been codenamed DLX.
This device, that may or (probably) may not have been pictured last month, was at one point said to be part of Google’s Nexus program. That too may have just been inaccurate information, but we can’t be sure just yet.
However, one thing is certain judging from the increasing number of rumors about this: HTC is working on a 5-inch Android device. And we have to assume the smart thing to do would be to launch it before the holiday shopping season kicks in.
On to the specs, then. As previously rumored, the DLX will have a 5-inch 1920×1080 Full HD touchscreen, probably one of those that Sharp started mass producing earlier this month. Alongside that, there will be a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built-in storage space, a 12 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 2,500 mAh non-removable battery.
The phablet will launch running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The very first rumor on the matter spoke of a September or October unveiling for the DLX. Now that September is gone, it should happen at some point this month.
