HTC’s Upcoming 5-inch, 1080p Superphone Reaffirmed Ahead of Fall Release
by ManISinJpr 06-08-12


This is the super screen phone that I was so waiting for !!

HTC has confirmed ( not directly but through the US tribune for testing or FCC )



HTC will step into the large-size smartphone segment by launching a flagship model with a 5-inch display featuring a resolution of 1794 by 1080 pixels in September-October, according to industry sources.
Samsung Electronics, which pioneered the development of the 5-inch segment, also plans to release a 5.5-inch model, the Galaxy Note II, at the end of August, the sources noted.
The brisk sales of Samsung's 5.3-inch Galaxy Note have attracted a number of vendors in Korea and China to venture into the large-size segment, noted the sources.
LG Electronics stepped into the segment by launching its 5-inch Optimus Vu in May 2012, and fellow company Pantech rolled out its second 5-inch model, the Vega S5, in July.
In China, Coolpad has launched two 5-inch models, the dual-SIM 9930 and 9900, while K-Touch has released the W710, which supports Alibaba cloud computing services.


BGR exclusively reported this past April that HTC (2498) will be the star of Verizon Wireless’s (VZ) fall lineup thanks to a new 5-inch superphone with a 1080p high-definition display, Scribe stylus support and a quad-core Krait CPU paired with an Adreno 320 graphics processor. Now, citing unnamed industry sources, Digitimes on Monday reported that HTC plans to launch a smartphone with a “5-inch display featuring a resolution of 1794 by 1080 pixels” some time in either September or October. The massive HD handset could be just what HTC needs to finish the year strong after a rough second quarter and continued struggles in the third quarter, but it’ll certainly have some stiff competition from the Galaxy S III, the upcoming Galaxy Note II and Apple’s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone, which will be announced on September 12th.

They should release a 15inch smartphone and blow away the competition once and for all.

Thank goodness they ditched tegra as the main application soc the hopeless integration and gating in tegra is battery phillic, a switch to lower process nodes and efficient soc will only help in maintaining performance at higher resolution.

On the other side not many apps are optimized for higher resolution making such devices unattractive with apps pov!

A 5" phone is pain to carry, 3'7"-4'3" form factor is the sweet spot any bigger than this gets cumbersome to carry add use.

Note is leading that segment pretty damn well and with Note 2 in pipeline, HTC must pull up their socks.

When iPhone was launched, people said 3.6 was too big and pocket unfriendly when people were used to 2.8-3.2 displays on touch phones (WM6 phones). 2 years later when everybody was comfortable with iPhone size, HTC launched the HD2 (less than 3 yrs before from today). Upon release everyone commented 4.3 is just mammoth and the phone is not for everyone, its the max size a phone could ever get...Now the 4.3' One S is being called compact by gsmarena and the main stream flagships are 4.6-4.8' while the mammoth's are 5.3...Times do change really fast, you never know

Nokia and Sony Ericsson were something i always looked up to while goin thru gadgets magazine for new models 7610, and among others, P990i, i jus recently found SE T610 thru this forum.. nobody else misses those slim curvy phones , flaps , v3i ????? cell phones these days are one brick after another.. anybody misses having a sexy looking phone jus for calls ???? may b not, but i do ! found a slek new like v3i wid a frnd...

therez a very thin line between phones, tablets and laptops presently, slowing everything is gonna merge in one ! ultimately only one gadget for calls , media n everything else.. wont u ppl miss having a particular top notch gadget for tht particular purpose ???

sorry for goin a lil offtopic !
