Is this blueprint showing us the HTC T6?
While the HTC One is 137.4mm high and 9.3mm thick, the device in the blueprint is measured at 140.4mm tall and 9.4mm thick. The Boom Sound front facing stereo speakers are on board. The rumored specs for the handset include a 5.9 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and an UltraPixel camera. A 3300mAh battery powers the model and it is believed that the HTC T6 will be powered by Android 5.0. or Key Lime Pie.
The second half of 2013 is going to bring a number of large-screened models. Besides the HTC T6, we will see the Samsung Galaxy Note III and the Sony Xperia ZU. The latter could end the year as the handset with the largest screen in the industry with its 6.44 inch Triluminous display exceeding the 6.3 inch glass on the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3.

I hope it's fake. Don't like that the speakers are off centre and I absolutely hate that the lower speaker grill is way bigger than the upper one. Don't they know? Beauty lies in symmetry.
... I'd love them to ditch the capacitive buttons as well. They are useless on a device as big. Share some screen for the buttons.

if HTC bring this then tough for Note 3.

I am starting to believe that end of 3Q or start of 4Q is when the really good stuff gets released. It will tough to decide between the HTC One Plus and the Note III.

True. A month ago, people were saying that GS4, HTC One and XpZ are gonna be phones of 2013. But things have indeed changed. Now OEMs are following a semi-annual approach, launching 2 high-end phones a year. This will definitely reduce the sales span of a particular device.

The Note 3 will probably be the most expensive, but will also have a removable battery.

right now it was Galaxy S4, Htc One and Xperia Z comparison and at the end of year it will be part 2 of this.
Galaxy Note 2, Htc (large) One and Xperia ZU.
looking forward to all the options.

Makes one wonder what becomes of the 20mp Sony flagship, the Galaxy S4 Mega and HTC Butterfly 2 which was last year's second half flagship.

It would be soooo much more manageable if they would just lose the capacitive buttons and go with Google's software buttons.
7. imkyle (Posts: 1051; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
It's funny that Google is pushing the on screen buttons, yet no one is making their handsets two years later with on screen buttons.
9. a_merryman (Posts: 749; Member since: 14 Dec 2011)
I can understand for smaller devices why they keep the physical/capacitive buttons. Especially physical ones like on the Galaxy series, since you can wake the phone up using it. But for larger devices like these.....it makes no sense, just save pocket real estate and use the on screen ones...
15. imkyle (Posts: 1051; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
A device as large as this should have on screen buttons.
25. TechFreak (Posts: 15; Member since: 22 Mar 2013)
Why loose so much screen space for the buttons..
I find it really pointless...
31. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
you use a larger screen to fill up the space that would be used by capacitive or physical keys.

i might be interested in this if only for the battery life. o:
10. Joshing4fun (Posts: 1097; Member since: 13 Aug 2010)
that design is identical to the HTC One...
13. Zomer (Posts: 141; Member since: 31 May 2013)
Yeah they just changed the dimensions, it's lame.
14. a_merryman (Posts: 749; Member since: 14 Dec 2011)
Yeah, agreed. Thats why I hate the galaxy series too, ugh, all they do is change the dimensions. /s
18. Zomer (Posts: 141; Member since: 31 May 2013)
I'm talking about MobiLeaks, not HTC. You really think a tipster is gonna send some unknown and small website the blue prints of a new device instead of a site like TheVerge, Engadget, PhoneArena, GSMArena? Think again, it's fake.

Boo. Xperia arc,ray,s,t,tx,v,z looks same to u? Unlike your beloved Samsung all phones looks the same
47. CanYouSeeTheLight (Posts: 1091; Member since: 05 Jul 2012)
Saying Sony has the same design is just lying, they are one of the better, or the best when it comes to new fresh design, take a look at the 2013 line, 2012, 2011, 2010, they always had a fresh design and they still have it.

With a snapdragon 800 chip . micro SD slot . 3300 mah and the possibility of a biometric meter on the back of the phone.. It's actually more than just a bigger ONE ..

What's next? A 10" screen phone? This is way too big!
22. affandi (Posts: 85; Member since: 25 Jan 2013)
140 mm body for a 5.9 inch phone........ yeah, because HTC is known for their minimal bezels.
By the way, I was sarcastic.
23. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
there's big speakers on the top and bottom. xD
24. Whateverman (Posts: 3237; Member since: 17 May 2009)
HTC One Max? Call it the HTC Colossus(yeah, like the X Man), polish the metal housing, add a stylus... And the Note 3 would have a really hard time.
30. Jack58221 (Posts: 143; Member since: 23 Feb 2013)
I don't know about polishing it, but I think once a phone breaks the 5.5 inch mark, a stylus should be standard.
35. Whateverman (Posts: 3237; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Your probably right. The brushed metal works for the One so if it ain't broke don't fix it.
39. Jack58221 (Posts: 143; Member since: 23 Feb 2013)
polished looks great till you touch it, or sneeze... if it came polished I would be wearing rubber gloves and a medical mask to ma ale a phone call. lol.
28. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I wish that it was 5 inch not 5.9 inch as rumors says and main camera with more Megapixels than HTC One has. :\
29. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i think it should be 5.3"-5.5" myself. 4.7"-5.0" is not a big enough difference between the M7 and the T6 for them to really complement each other on the same shelf.
33. clevername (Posts: 1435; Member since: 11 Jul 2008)
Just thinkin...the HTC ONE is almost as heavy as the Lumia 920...if not equal... How heavy will a 5.9" version be?
40. Jack58221 (Posts: 143; Member since: 23 Feb 2013)
M7 weight = Lumia
T6 weight = Lumina (Chevrolet car)
wouldn't matter to me, it's still on my wish list.
38. ckoch125 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
If they can really get a 5.9" in a size that is only a little longer than the s4 that will be amazing, especially seeing how they are cramming a much larger screen than their One yet only adding. 3 mm
43. affandi (Posts: 85; Member since: 25 Jan 2013)
It is nice to dream, but this is not physically possible my friend. The screen alone would probably almost be bigger than 140 mm, let alone HTC's huge bezels + dual front facing speakers. This beast is going to be at least 165 mm.
(Samsung galaxy mega 5.8 is 162.6 mm)

Is HTC becoming like samsung? Same design. The reason i consider to buy One, bcs design. Glad Desire 600 different. If HTC continue this s**t, bye HTC.
