First pics of a 6" Full HD screen and two other Windows Phones from ZTE appear

Now the alleged ZTE phone with 5.9" 1920x1080 screen has appeared in flesh, and it is running Windows Phone, judging from the logo on the back. As far as Microsoft's official WP8 specs are concerned, the mobile OS supports up to HD resolutions only, so this might very well be a development prototype of sorts.
A few display makers have shown 5" Full HD screens already, but this is bigger than even the Note II's display, so we are dying to know the story behind this eventual ZTE handset.
If we believe the leaked pictures from a ZTE exec on the right, the company is planning two other Windows Phone as well, and the one in the middle seems to be running 7.8, hinting at an entry level device.
Looks like the WP8 hardware surprises are not ending anytime soon.

All these other pretenders faking and fronting. Nothing will beat the Galaxy Note 2 period. I applaud the other manufacturers elevating the tech game cause all Samsung will do is usher in the Galaxy Note 3. Until then the next 180 days everyone will be scrambling to match the Note 2....

I will say something crazy and possibly dumb...even though we heard rumours of a Microsoft Windows Phone 8 Surface phone earlier and that it was supposed to be between 4-5 inch screen diagonal, could this actually be the (a?) Surface phone prototype?

Soooooo sorry, but the size alone does not make a great phablet... That S-Pen baby is the key that makes Samsung the king of the over 5" category... And my next phablet will be that SG-Note III, you know the one that's rumored to be 6.3"... But for now i'll stick with my 5.3" OG-Note, that fat 16:10 ratio soon to be upgraded with Air View & Multi Window (and much more) sweeeeet phablet... These are the things that will keep Samsung on top... Not just screen size.

Wow.. It amazes me how everyone is saying that this is too big when almost a year and a half ago the note would be consider ridiculously big. If Samsung decided to make the next note 6inches I guarantee most of you hating on this would accept it and praise it. Stop it with the Windows & ZTE hate.. Imo anything over 4.5inches is absurdly huge.. However I'm one person and don't make the rules or standards for what's deemed acceptable to the masses. I still accept the options which are being presented!

Not that I agree with your personal opinion on the phone sizes. But I do applaud how you compiled and laid down your post. That's how people need to approach more things. Rather then putting down a blind hatred for a brand or product give either reasons why or at least don't make a generic comment at a company for trying to put out a product that is attempting to better the tech world or make some competition(even if they don't come close). Now if a company like ZTE came out and said "most dominant phablet ever" then obviously they deserve it. Same goes for the Apple Vs Android scene. I'm not going to call my friend an idiot for owning a iPhone but the minute he begins to brag that it is the best phone available yada yada... then I will knock him back down to reality. That's the difference I agree w/ richardyerral2011's post though. As for the Samsung Galaxy Note II , I was amazed at how much Sammy really did with it. IMHO it is one of the Top WHOLE PACKAGE phones in quite some time. Not only is it the whole package but it has some leading tech in several areas. Most phones offer something great in the place of something else. Where as GnII didn't hold back they just threw it down.

Well...the sales of the Note and Note 2 says there is a market for it. Me and a few others just dont agree with the size. I consider the GS3 to be the absolute max size for a phone. We all dont like or want the same things. I agree its nice to have choices. I just hope all manufactures dont go the 5-6" size and forget about those of us that like smaller phones. I got the Droid X1 in 2010...and that was considered a tablet by some ppl....lol So I do get what you're saying.
