HTC's rumoured 5in smartphone is back in the news after it was speculated, on Twitter, the Taiwanese company's forthcoming HTC DLX would feature a full 5in HD display. The display size aside, the smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro, running at a clock speed of 1.5GHz. The device will have 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space.
The DLX will reportedly offer a 12 megapixel rear-facing camera, compared to the eight megapixel on the Galaxy Note 2 and also a two megapixel front-facing camera. The handset will draw from what is believed to be a 2500mAh non-removable battery and offer Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean).
According to Phone Arena, a benchmark, using the AnTuTu benchmark app, shows the DLX scored an impressive 11510, which is only marginally behind the Exynos 4 1.4GHz quad-core-powered Samsung Galaxy S3.
Mobile Review reported on a rumoured HTC 5in smartphone that was approved by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) as supporting 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. The device, according to those documents, was listed as HTC 6435LVW, which is the same number of a device that appeared on GLBenchmark. However, there is one change. The Operating System listed in the latter detailing is Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and not Jelly Bean.
The HTC 6435LVW, as Unwired View notes, could launch as the Droid Incredible X for Verizon, whereas another variant could appear as the earlier rumoured Google Nexus 5, with tweaks to onboard storage space.
