Mystery HTC device could be 5 inch phablet model heading to Verizon (new image)

Mystery HTC device could be 5 inch phablet model heading to Verizon (new image)
Just because it's the weekend doesn't mean that nothing new and exciting doesn't come out. For example, a Chinese forum has just leaked a couple of pictures of a mysterious HTC device. The red accents on the side of the device look similar to what we've seen with Verizon and the Taiwan based manufacturer before. Also, note the Beats Audio logo on the back.

GLBenchmark recently displayed results for a phone designated as HTC6435LVW. This device had under the hood (what else?) the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and a World Mode LTE/HSPA+ radio. The 1080 x 1794 resolution on the screen could be stretched out to read 1800 on the vertical if you include HTC's Android 4.0 navigation button. And that would dovetail perfectly with a rumored 5 inch 1080p phablet expected to be manufactured by HTC for Verizon.

It's hard to reach a conclusion on anything with just two snapshots, so we would advise you to use your salt shaker on this one, at least until more information is available.

Update: And now we have another shot of the front of this mysterious phablet. Check it out right after the source links below!
