    HTC A5: What about specs?

    The Android powered phone will possibly feature with a 5.5-inch Super LCD2 (720p) display, which seems fine for a mid-range phone. Further, the handset may come with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with a single LED Flash , and a 5MP shooter on the front.

    Under the hood, we can expect a 1.6 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8928) processor, backed by 1.5GB of internal memory and 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot.

    Like the HTC One, the HTC A5 will incorporate dual frontal speakers with BoomSound and built-in amplifiers. The HTC A5 is said to run Android 4.4 Kitkat with Sense 6.0 on the top of it.

    Rumor has it that the large size phablet will arrive in Black, White, Red, Purple and Yellow colors.
