Geez, it's pretty busy here in the world of mobile these days. Last week we had the announcement of the new Windows Phone-powered HTCs and the launch of the iPhone 5, but this week is also starting strongly, as we now have this crazy rumor going that the 5" Droid Incredible X, which we've seen leak a few times, will end up being a device called Google Nexus 5...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

dude, i'm so irritated its on VZW. If they don't release a pure google phone on AT&T. I'll have to settle with the Note 2. I love my Note, and thankful for all the Dev support getting me running on some great JB roms, but I want some pure google love. If it's true about the HTC, Droid Incredible X (Acronym for D.I.X. - Yes, I believe someone will get fired from this. I will let everyone fill in the jokes starting now), I just may make the jump over to VZW again lol.

Umm 1.5 to 2 GB storage would certainly suck, I hope you meant RAM :-)

Don't know about your Dinc2 but the EVO LTE is one of the highest quality superphones out there, if not the highest. HTC makes quality products and most people in the industry agree. Of course, every manufacturer has issues, with HTC it's usually the exception, not the norm.

Best looking phones, in my eyes. No, just best looking phones, period!

so many agree that HTC is the best that they are a few more quarters away from going to the "other" category with ZTE....

Me thinks your fanboyism is not matching reality.

My last two Thunderbolts have had terrible build quality (2nd one replaced the 1st due to a cracked screen). While my GN that replaced the TB doesn't feel as solid due to it's lighter weight, it has survived better than HTC. I tried the Razr and would say that takes the cake of the three, well four if you include any iPhone (at the very bottom, easiest to scratch and break).

HTC may not be the best handset seller, but if i want to get a phone with robust build quality, the first name that comes to my mind is HTC, then Sony/Moto..

I would let a slight drop in speed, of which i can't really notice in real life for that LTE radio in the snapdragon.. Anyway, since Krait, Snapdragon is not crappy like before.. S4 is a huge improvements over previous versions.. If dual core S4 can match that of quad cores, I can't imagine the power of their quads.. but if exynos is proved to be faster, I would still prefer the one with LTE radio, because for me, faster connection is more important than loading a game 1 second faster..

but again, this is my personal preference.. :)

More phablets! =D
1080p on a 5inch screen is unecessary though..
But well, innovation is always welcome!

You had me sold before you said 64GB of memory! lol. I highly doubt it will come with that much internal memory simply because it will raise the overall cost out of "nexus" range. The most internal memory I can see is 32GB

Not bad. If this releases I will accept that Htc is back in the game.

1080p display with only 2500 mAh battery? Battery life is going to be horrible...

That's HTC.. =(
I don't think it will come with a 1080p.
Gotta wait and see.

my exact thoughts too. battery life is not in the equation when HTC decides to make a phone.

There was a rumor that the HTC One X+ for T-Mobile was delayed because HTC wants to stuff a bigger battery into it... HTC is getting better.

haha, over at HTC Elevate they are discussing whether they should shave off few mm or trade that with a bigger battery.. most responders say they rather have bigger battery than anorexic phones..

Just hope that HTC will listen this time..

Wow, a nexus device with that specs would be expensive. But hell, it would be the flagship device everyone would want to have. Except the one on the first comment.

If this would be true, its price would be on par with that of Note II which we know will be expensive, but you would get what you pay for.

A super high resolution display, best processor to date, and a camera that would probably beat others in the competition(we should hope that it would have the best software to support it) will be a WIN WIN FOR GOOGLE AND HTC!

Seriously! The nexus 7 sold only because of the competitive pricing

the only thing that Nexus 7 was behind is its memory..
other than that, it's one of, if not the best spec'ed tablet android has to offer.. It's practically the same as those 10.1" quad core tablets..

so no, it's not only because of its competitive pricing.. the price only helps to its sales..
