Alleged press shot of HTC One X 5 has people talking
A press photo out of China allegedly shows off the highly anticipated 5 inch monster from HTC. Over the weekend, speculation was that the Verizon bound phablet would go by the name HTC DIx, or DROID Incredible X. The photo allegedly shows the device, but with a different name, the HTC One X 5.

Not only is there uncertainty about the name, there is still a question about what will be under the hood. Some all calling for the phablet to be powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, most likely the MSM8960. Other see nothing less than an LTE lovin' quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 pro doing the heavy lifting. One thing that everyone agrees on is a 1080p resolution on a 5 inch screen with a tremendously high pixel density (480ppi is one rumor). Looking at the back of the unit, we see that Beats Audio will be included.

If this is indeed the 5 inch monster headed to Verizon, it is going to face some competition in the phablet sector from the LG Intuition and the Samsung GALAXY Note II. Throw in competition from sizzling hot handsets like like the Apple iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the rumored LG Optimus Blaze, and it is going to be a difficult winter ahead for customers of Big Red with an upgrade to burn.

UPDATE: According to HTC Source, the press shot was actually created by a Flickr user by the name of Dannix. HTC Source reports that its source is still confident that the device will come out as a DROID flavored model called the HTC DIx.
