Here’s something from the rumor mill: HTC is supposedly building their own 5-inch phablet that’s said to carry a 1794 by 1080 pixel display. Add in the 126 pixels carried by the Android navigation bar on the bottom, and you’re looking at a full HD 1920 x 1080 display, a first for the smartphone space. Samsung’s Galaxy S III and HTC’s own One X both use 720 x 1280 display resolutions. So what spurred the sudden interest in going big? Well, the source that Digitimes used said that the company saw the appeal and revenue of devices like the Galaxy Note and LG’s Vu, and hopes to score it big with their own re-imagining of the phablet. Rumored specs of this supposed 5-inch HTC HD monster? Well, how does a Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor and a Adreno 320 GPU sound? Like any rumor, take all of these news with a grain of salt, until HTC confirms the actual product a few months from now.
