Alleged press shot of HTC One X 5 has people talking

An alleged press photo of a device called the HTC One X 5 has been published on a Chinese website and this appears to be the HTC phablet that was being called the HTC DIx elsewhere; the screen is expected to offer 1080p resolution with a possible quad-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor and is rumored to be Verizon bound...

If everyone agrees that it will be a 5 inch screen with 1080p resolution, then how is there any disagreement on the pixel density. If you do the math it's going to be 440.58 ppi.

Because it may be 5.3 or 5.0 or 5.1 and so on.
But what we can say, is that if it is 1080p, it will be over 400 and from there thats really all that matters.
I don't understand why this is necessary other than marketing. It's just going to make thinks more stressful on the device and use more power. Something lower seems much more practical.

Pixel density is inversely proportional to the screen size. The larger the screen, lower the pixel density.

The more the pixel the sharper the graphics and photos.

Not talking about larger resolutions. The thing is that a 1080p resolution display on a 5 inch screen will give a better pixel density than a 1080p display on a 5.5 one. So comment #12 is technically wrong in saying that the size of screen maybe 5.1 or 5.3.

What No_Nonsense is trying to convey is that if you increase screen size to more than 5 inches the ppi will be less then 440.53, because the diagonal of a 1080p screen is is 2203 pixels. For a 5.1 inch screen the ppi will go down to 431.94 etc. I guess what I was trying to say is that in my original post is that 480 ppi is not possible with a five inch or larger screen. Sorry for the ambiguity.

To have 480 ppi on a 1080p screen, the screen size would be 4.59 inches.

This trumps the Galaxy NOTE.

Everything about it trumps the Note, except the latest rumor that it won't be compatible with a digitizer pen. that is surprising since they were the first to include the tech on tablets, which failed not because of the pen but the "premium" pricing. Many people have no use for the added precision the pen provides but I do. If I am going to carry a huge phone for the versatility of using it in place of a tablet, then I want the added versatility of a digital notebook as well.

Too everyone that says it is not necaseraraly to have a 1080p display I understand what your coming from but at the same time I say wait and see what can be done with the screen resolution because you never know if it is not needed untill we get a chance to develope applications for the screen. It might have other reasons besides how good the picture looks. I am not sure the possibilities yet and neither is anybody else. But I say if it can be done than do it. There could be some possibilities of 3d screens can be done right with that resolution. Maybe being able to have better pixel management to where you use half the pixels and alternate them to have doferent affects to make the screen last longer and actually make it battery management better. It could have a affect when you have really fast moving objects on the screen like playing madden football or watching sports on the screen where you see a huge improvement.
All I know is I can't wait to see if it is redundant or a smoke and mirrors gimmick,

Am I wrong to have a nerdgasm all over my computer screen? In fact am I wrong to have three consecutively because I would die to have a device of this caliber in my grasp...even if it is just demo time...

I think this will be a huge hit if this is true. 1080p is a game changer.

Looks like this htc one x5 will be more comfortable to place in you're pocket judging from the picture. 1080p screen will But I like the design of the original one x more, this thing kinda reminds me of the Evo 4G lte
