Rumor: HTC to enter the phablet market this fall with a 5-inch 1794 x 1080 display


If rumors of the upcoming HTC One X+ are enough to get your blood pumping, we’re positive that a handset sporting a 5-inch 1794 x 1080 pixel resolution display, Qualcomm’s MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 SoC paired with an Adreno 320 GPU could actually make your heart skip a beat.

According to DigiTimes, industry sources claim that HTC’s 5-inch device could be ready between September and October. Since DigiTimes is known for missing the mark, we’re happy to see that the rumor actually matches up with benchmark scores for the mysterious HTC 6435LVW which showed up on GLBenchmark a few weeks ago.

The HTC 6435LVW profile claims that the phone is running on a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 SoC with Android 4.0.4 and shows multiple references to Verizon. At first, many speculated that the HTC 6435LVW would be HTC’s re-entry into the tablet market, but it looks like HTC is actually poised to enter the phablet space and go head-to-head with Samsung’s Galaxy Note.

Is this the right move for HTC? Would you rather see a Galaxy Note competitor or a new Android tablet from HTC?
