Is this blueprint showing us the HTC T6?
Now that we are heading into the second half of 2013, among the most eagerly anticipated phones for the rest of the year is the HTC T6. This is expected to be the large-screened version of the HTC One which might be called the HTC One Max. On Friday, a blueprint-styled sketch of an HTC phone was published. While the phone in the blueprint looks just like the HTC One, the dimensions of the device are larger than those for the Taiwan based firm's flagship Android device.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 makes no sense, just save pocket real estate and use the on screen ones...

A device as large as this should have on screen buttons.

Why loose so much screen space for the buttons.. I find it really pointless...

you use a larger screen to fill up the space that would be used by capacitive or physical keys.

Yeah, agreed. Thats why I hate the galaxy series too, ugh, all they do is change the dimensions. /s

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.

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 ..
