HTC’s Verizon Bound 1080p Phone Rumored to Have Quad-core Snapdragon S4, 1.5GB RAM, and 480ppi Display

The HTC “dlx” or better known to most as the upcoming 1080p 5″ device, may sport a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, a non-removable battery, and a pixel density of 480ppi, according to HTCSource. This rumor also suggests that the phone may end up being DROID-branded on Verizon, since the source of this information claims that the phone has a “red techno” background and the now-famous “DROID” notification sound. The phone we have seen in pictures (above) is also said to be the device we have all been waiting for.

There is a chance that we ¬†could see this phone next week at HTC’s NYC event.

Does this sound like your dream device?

    Not unless the none removable battery is like droid razer maxx size. personally i would much rather have a removable battery so i can buy extended if needed

  • feztheforeigner

    Y NO 2GB RAM?

  • No virtual keys, no care.

  • I think I’ve finally come to terms that this will be my next phone. After spending countless hours watching youtube videos of the GS3(using it in person also), Razr HD Maxx, and the Note II I’m getting drawn more and more to this one the more details come out. The LG phone is definitely ringing in the back of my head but poor support from the past has me cautiously optimistic about it.

    The math seems kinda off there… If the screen is 1080p, and the pixel density is 480ppi… that should give you a 4.6 inch screen, not 5 inches.

    Not a big fan of sense, but wouldn’t dismiss a phone with those specs.

  • Ibrick

    If the One X came w/ 32gb internal, do we really expect this to have less?
    If there is a 16gb model, I would expect HTC to offer a 32gb model along side it, hell 64gb wouldn’t be out of the question.
    The 1.5gb RAM makes no Sense either. HTC is swinging for the fences, 32+gb internal along w/ 2gb RAM is what I expect.

    Maybe a new Incredible worthy of the Incredible name. This could be my next phone!

  • romma

    I have an 1800 MAH battery in my Inc 2 and it runs through a whole day just fine..

    I think they should wait for 1080p to be the norm on tablets before they start pushing it to phones. I’m pretty happy with 720p on mine, It’d be nice to let GPUs catch up to the needed pixel-pushing power, or apps to actually have resources at 320 ppi. Nevermind the ‘retina’ thing, is doubling the needed backlight and GPU power worth the diminishing returns on sharpness? Is a display this cutting edge even going to be any good? As it is, no one but HTC are using good 720 screens.

    • sagisarius

      I keep wondering if Android tablets are for the most part (tf700 and a few others being the exception) just going to wind up jumping up to QuadHD (1440×2560) pretty quick. I’ve been using an iPad 3 for a while, and it starting to get really hard to look at lower res screens. In any case, I’m just happier with higher ppi than what we had a few years ago.

  • Andy

    I view a non removable battery as a show stopper.

  • Scott Bowen

    will it have a kickstand?????

  • RocketScience

    I sure hope it has GSM on Verizon for global use. Otherwise it is a non-started for me.

  • jdrch

    Only 1.5GB of RAM? This is why HTC is behind on market share: while Samsung pushes every spec to the limit, HTC devices always have *something* missing. I’ll pass.

  • CapnShiner

    This device has loads of potential but nothing is ever perfect. It may have a 480ppi 1080p screen and a quad-core cpu but it should have at least 2GB of RAM to compete with the Galaxy Note 2 and S3, a non-removable battery is a joke unless it is 3000mAh or more, and 16GB of internal storage is nothing unless it has an SD card slot. With a screen that size and resolution, the battery alone can make or break this device. A larger screen also means it is better suited for watching videos, which require maximum storage space. If HTC skimps on either of those specs, this device will fail. It also has to be priced competitively because nobody will buy it if it costs more than a Galaxy Note 2. I’m intrigued but skeptical.

    P.S. The one thing I like about these “phablets” is that hipsters will have a hard time using them because they won’t fit in the pockets of their stupid skinny jeans.


    If these reports on the specs are true, I won’t need another phone for a looong time. I just hope HTC doesn’t troll us and put a 1,200 mAh battery in the phone.

  • It’s between this or the Samsung galaxy note 2, so far the note seems to be winning me over.

  • jawtab

    I’ll take a MOTOROLA MAXX HD. Thank you. Why?

    1. Battery Life
    2. Reception
    3. Solid 4.7″ high res display

    • Bionic


    • don’t forget the new Blur over Sense. As close to vanilla without it being a Nexus. Yeah I’ll go with that.

  • flosserelli

    1. Non-removable battery for a 5″ 480ppi screen
    2. 16GB storage and no sdcard
    3. Capacitive buttons

    HTC, I really want you to make a comeback. But this has fail written all over it.

  • I thought the shortchange/screw their customers ploy was over,
    What the f**k is 1.5GB? What else? a 1400mAh battery?
    A 1080p screen needs both to be off the chart…and I mean “needs”.

  • areffes

    So frustrating, there just isn’t a “Goldilocks” phablet yet. Love the look and feel of the LG but hate their UI and reputation for low quality when it comes to touchscreen phones. Can’t get down with a non-removable battery. And I’m just tired of Samsung–had 3 of those in a row, time to try something new. Sigh……Really, if there were a RAZR M variant of a 5 incher that had a removable battery, I think that would be my dream phone.

  • Non removable battery…….unless it’s 3000+mah don’t bother.

  • Tyler

    Watch this will have a 2k mAh battery.
