A couple of tech vendors are working on large display ducked smartphones. Samsung, who started this insane tradition of making oversized handsets, is once again ready to enthrall consumers with its forthcoming Galaxy Note 3. Another leader in the consumer electronics business - Sony unofficially confirmed to GizBot that the company is planning an extra large handset. Currently the device is in a proto-type stage. It is expected to be announcing either at IFA Berlin or CES 2014. HTC, a struggling player in the smartphone business, is prepping a phablet. The unannounced smartphone is touted to be bigger than HTC One with a 5.9-inch Full HD display.
Twitter sensation @Evleaks has got its hands on the alleged specifications of forthcoming phablet device. Dubbed T6, the HTC phablet could arrive sometime later this year. HTC One is selling well despite component issues. Yesterday, Google announced that HTC One now comes with stock Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It will cost consumers Rs. 33, 876($599). As of now, the handset is limited to US only.
The HTC T6 is said to come with a 5.9-inch Full HD display. On the other hand the much hyped Galaxy Note 3 could pack a 6.3-inch Full HD panel, while the Sony Togari reportedly carries a 6.4-inch display with resolution of 1,920 x 1080 pixels. Talking about internals, the HTC T6 would carry a modest 2GB of RAM, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood, UtraPixel camera on the rear and 2.1-mega pixel front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage , Android 5.0 key Lime Pie , and a 3,300mAh battery inside.
In the second half of this year, the Taoyuan-based smartphone maker also plans to introduce a new flagship product with a larger screen size of up to 5.9 inches and an upgraded processor, as per Laura Chen, an analyst at BNP Paribas Securities Taiwan Ltd ( via Focus Taiwan)
The report further says that an upgraded version of HTC Butterfly is also coming. Currently it is known by the name of M4, and could arrive in June. Stay tuned to GizBot.
