The HTC DIx Droid Phablet Leaks a little More
Has anyone been wondering where HTC has been in the past few months? Me neither. HTC came out of the gates swinging a few months back with their latest refresh to the company’s flagship line up. The One series of devices brought us the One X, One V, and One S and even the EVO 4G LTE to the forefront of the mobile world, unfortunately for the handset manufacturer the likes of Samsung’s Galaxies were seemingly too much…or so it seems. HTC has gone on to launch the likes of the Droid Incredible 4G LTE since then but the device seems more of a place holder for the HTC Droid legacy. Currently the question on everyone’s mind is what will HTC do to compete with Samsung and LG’s presence in the oversized phablet market?
An oversized smart phone used to be a wondering phenomenon that never really found a place within the consumer market. But Samsung and LG have changed that paradigm with the Galaxy Note and the LG Intuition aka Optimus VU. Now it seems that it may be HTC’s turn. Back in August a rumor surrounding the company’s plans for a new super sized smart phone emerged into the rumor mill. The un named device was leaked by an “industry sources” who gave up particular details about the devices screen size, pixel per inch ratio and even resolution. More recent leaks have given us a better look as to what this mystery phablet would look like. According to some new details from HTCSource.Com the new oversized smart phone is currently being referred to as the HTC Dix. Dix supposedly standing for Droid Incredible X. The HTC Dix is said to come with a 5 inch touch screen that provides a full 1080p pixel resolution with a pixel per inch ratio clocking in around 440 to 480. Additionally this new monster device will pack in a quad core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1.5 GB of Ram and 16GB of internal storage. The leaky spy shots of the device, its DIX nomenclature and robotic Droid-esq notification sound, is leading many to believe this new oversized HTC handset will be branded and launched as a part of the legendary Droid line up.
