Firefly V65 outed with a record 6.5
Just when we were wondering what the heck is this 6.44" Full HD screen Sony is planning to put in its upcoming Togari phablet, and the Chinese phone company Firefly announced its V65 monster, which sports... you guessed it - a 6.45" Full HD display.

Close enough, and the company listed the rest of the specs of the previously known as Actwell i6000 during the development phase phone. A 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek chipset will be powering the gargantuan display, aided by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. The press shots flaunt a stylus as well, but it is nor clear if there is a dedicated silo for it. There are also a 13 MP camera on the back, and a hearty 5 MP front shooter. A 9.5mm thin frame fitting a 3150mAh battery pack rounds up the V65.

We don't want to rain on Firefly's parade, but what were they thinking by placing the famed Galaxy Note family wallpaper in their press render just like that? What we are most interested in, however, is the display. With the exact same size and 1920x1080 resolution as the one rumored to go into an upcoming phablet from Sony, it lends even more credence to the Togari rumor.

Firefly says it is OGS display, meaning it integrates the touch sensor and the display glass into one, similar to what we have in the dandiest mobile screens of late. This increases brightness throughput and slims down the panel additionally. 

The fact that we not only have the render, which might very well be vaporware, but an alleged picture of the actual device lying on the table next to another big-screen phone, makes us even more excited that the Sony phablet is real. We are also including a few snaps we found from the previous reincarnation of the device, when it was showing under the i6000 moniker. What would you think if Sony pulls off a similar device?

Mediatek cpus are made for battery life not performance. This phone will easily get 2-3 days of standard use.
