Last month we reported that HTC were launching a smartphone , called the HTC One X5, which would rival Samsung's over-sized Galaxy Note II . Now the leak has been re-itterated , but this time the smartphone is being referred to as the HTC DLX.
According to the rumours, leaked by Football4PDA, the HTC DLX will have 5 inch full HD display (1920*1080 pixels). This resolution isn't even standard on fully fledged tablets , so it would be quite something for it to feature on a smartphone.
The smartphone is expected to be powered by a quad-core 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon S4 processor which will work in tandem with 1.5GB of RAM. While the HTC DLX is rumoured to have 16GB of on-board memory which we hope will be expandable using microSD cards.
Two cameras are also rumoured to be present on the HTC DLX with both a rear-facing 12 mega-pixel snapper and a front-facing 2 mega-pixel camera expected to feature. The only other things revealed about HTC's smartphone is that it'll have a removable 2500 mAh battery and that it'll run on Android Jelly Bean.
So do 3G think that the HTC DLX can challenge Samsung's Galaxy Note II ?
We really don't see any reason it shouldn't when comparing the specification of the devices, but Samsung have a first mover advantage and a much stronger presence in the mobile industry as a whole. For that reason we think it'll be hard for HTC to make much of an impact on Samsung's market share.
