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!

No information is available about the battery yet though,for all you know it could be a 3100 mah battery like the galaxy note 2 if not an even larger one,at that size battery capacity the battery life would be decent indeed

Even though there is no info on battery, I'm sure HTC will send it out with something small requiring you to pay up for an additional extended battery or external battery charger because HTC phone all gobble up battery life fast.

Trying to take advantage of removable batteries is an enormous pain, I tried and the time it takes to charge is not worth it. Also, keeping batteries in a wallet charged at 100% is terrible for the lifetime. Give me a bigger internal sealed battery any day, as long as it is still possible for people to replace when battery is dying or dead.

No. There is a difference between a removable battery and non-removable. A removable battery can be easily taken out and replaced while walking around. A non-removable battery usually requires a case opener tool and a few screwdrivers to take out the battery, like the iPhone 4 series. The One X has a problem where getting out the battery requires that you also take out the motherboard, which basically means any replacement is highly dangerous. The One S and Evo LTE do not. The One X would be considered okay by me if it had the battery connector on top of the motherboard, but because it is on the bottom, it is too hard for even technical people to replace the battery when the phone is out of warranty.

I really don't have a problem with removable or non-removable battery. It's on how you manage it. Just a compact charger will do the trick. But hell this thing is sexy. I really need to graduate immediately to have these kinds of gadgets.

If it has a big battery, it wont matter. I just want to know if its a Windows Phone 8 or Android!?

seriously, 5" is phablet? remember presented 5" full hd screen from lg? I think next generation of smartphones could have 5" screens so it's still phone not any phablet! and "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" do you mean 1920 not 1800, geniuses?

I am very interested to see how this plays out. A phablet is probably in my future so my choices will probably range between this, the galaxy note 2, and the LG device. But I admit that after my run with the thunderbolt, I think my faith is distant. Nonetheless, we should see how these devices bring their A game.

The rumored resolution of 1794 x 1080 doesn't fit to the leaked picture. The Phablet with FullHD display needs to have onscreen navigation buttons to match the resolution. (1920p-1794p = 126 pixels left over for navigation buttons). But the pictured device clearly has capacitive buttons and not onscreen ones.

Rumors also suggested it would come with a stylus like on the HTC Flyer tablet, but I don't see where that stylus would be housed. It was also rumored to have a quad-core processor, not a dual-core processor. So, either the rumors were wrong (which is likely) or we are looking at a different device.
