Previously, Gizbot reported about rumours which suggested HTC is working on a big-phablet version of their flagship device HTC One. Adding to the rumours @evleaks, a highly trusted source has also tweeted that the phablet version is on the works. The device is said to go by the code name T6. Does this mean confirmation on the phablet's existence?
There is no word on the specifications or features of the smartphone. However, there have been reports circulating that the device might come with a display sized somewhere between 5 inches and 6 inches. Also, the reports suggest that the new device might come with similar features and specifications to that of the original flagship device. There are other reports which suggest the phablet will come with a Micro-SD slot that is absent in HTC One and also a more powerful battery.
At the same time, in another set of news; confirming the existence of the device, a report by VR Zone via HTC Soku leaked the several model numbers used for the HTC One phablet in respect to different variants.

Let's have a quick recap on the specifications of the original HTC Flagship phone, to get a better perspective on things.
The HTC One packs a 4.7-inch 1080p Full HD display (468ppi), Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad core processor (1.7GHz), 2GB of RAM, HTC Sense 5.0, 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal memory, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, UltraPixel camera, 2.1-mega pixel camera on the front for video chat, 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Beats sound, and a 2,300mAh battery. The device is priced at Rs.42,900.
The HTC One is easily one of the best smartphones out there in the market, currently. A phablet as good as the HTC One along with a Micro-SD slot and extra batery life can be a force to be reckoned with.
