Are your pinches of salt ready? Today, we’ve gotten word that the phablet world may just get a new addition from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, one that aims to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s dominance — the HTC DLX.
A tweet from known tipster Football4PDA reveals the specs of the rumored new device from HTC:
- Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz processor
- 5-inch display
- 1.5 GB RAM
- 16 GB Internal Storage
- a 12 MP rear facing camera, complemented by a 2 MP shooter on the front
- a massive 2500mAh non-removable battery
- OS will be Android 4.1.2
Football4PDA did not give any additional sources or information about this rumor but according to reports, information provided by this person has been more or less reliable in the past. The device is supposedly already headed to China and Germany. The US will be getting it through Verizon and will come with LTE capabilities.
Looking at these specs, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is still the better device — a bigger battery, more RAM, a faster processor and a screen that’s bigger by half an inch. However, HTC’s been known to deliver some pretty solid and sexy looking smartphones so we’re still curious as to what the HTC DLX will end up looking like and if it has any other surprise features that could convince users to pick it over the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Based on what we know so far, do you think the HTC DLX will be able to compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
