rumored to be hitting the market at the end of the current quarter. Speculation has this model carrying a 4.3 inch glass with resolution of 720p. Despite keeping the 2GB of RAM that is found on the full-sized version, there would be just 16GB of native storage, a dual-core processor, and a smaller capacity 1700mAh battery. The camera on back would continue to use HTC's UltraPixel technology.
But turning back to the larger sized model, the sources say that the specs would be the same as those on the HTC One. The larger sized screen would help HTC compete with the 5 inch Samsung Galaxy S4. Depending on the size of the larger screen, the new version just might allow the phone to go up against the 5.5 inch Samsung GALAXY Note II.
Time is not on HTC's side. Ironically, the company is losing top executives just as it has finally produced a handset that has captured the imagination of the public with its sleek, sexy aluminum unibody design. The question is whether the company can hold together long enough to reap some of the benefits of the demand for the HTC One.
