Rumor: HTC working on HTC Flyer 2 to compete with Nexus 7, new Kindle Fire


The mysterious 10-inch HTC tablet we saw last week got quite a bit of attention, but the latest rumor going around on the web is that HTC is working on a 7-inch successor to the HTC Flyer. The HTC Flyer 2 is said to feature a 28nm Snapdragon S4 chip, Android 4.1, 3 megapixel camera on the back, 1 megapixel front-facing camera and a 7.1mm thin anodized aluminum body similar to the HTC One S. The 7-inch display is expected to feature a resolution of 1280×768 pixels, giving the HTC Flyer 2 a 213.25 ppi – much higher than the 170 ppi of the original Flyer.

There’s no word as to when the HTC Flyer 2 will be unveiled, but the general consensus is that HTC will position this device to compete on price with the new Kindle Fire and the Nexus 7. If that’s the case, we doubt HTC will include its Scribe active pen technology, but that’s pure speculation on our part.

Do you think HTC can deliver a 7-inch tablet at the right price to compete with Google and Amazon?
