HTC “T6″ Device Specs Detailed – 5.9” 1080p Display, Snapdragon 800 and Key Lime Pie

htc logo2

Details on an upcoming HTC superdevice, codenamed T6, reportedly leaked giving us a glimpse into what the manufacturer has cooking for later this year. I know we don’t like using the word “phablet,” but the device is listed as featuring a massive 5.9″ display, complete with 1080p resolution. If that wasn’t enough to get someone excited, it is reported that HTC looks to power this monster using Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, capable of maintaining a clock speed of up to 2.3GHz. 

While crazy high-end specs are being tossed around, the one extremely unique feature of this device that we should point out is that according to the leak, this device could launch running Key Lime Pie. Release is penciled in for sometime near the end of this year, so given Google’s slower roll out method with Android 4.3, this could all pan out if it’s real.

Another detail that could get the Galaxy Note 2 fans excited is the addition of a premium stylus accessory, said to come with the device. HTC is reportedly sparing no expense on the design and feel of this pen, with the company also including special software to make good use of it.


  • Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core
  • 5.9″ 1080p display
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • UltraPixel back-facing camera
  • 2.1MP front-facing camera w/ wide angle lens
  • 3,300mAh battery
  • Key Lime Pie (Android version unknown)

The specs listed are basically a dream device for some people, possibly minus the UltraPixel, depending on who you talk to. Besides that, the device shows a very nice display, enough power to do anything you might need and a stylus to boot. The question is, would it be a big version of the One or could we see a new design entirely?

Let us know your thoughts down below.

    Perhaps Verizon might announce this at the end of the year with VoLTE.

  • Sam

    Although I love bigger display screens, I think 5.9 is a little much. Thing is though, I’d still buy this regardless,

  • yummy

    I need more gigs. Gotto have
    more gigs. GIVE ME MORE

  • Higher_Ground

    So we should expect this phone, realistically, some time next year?

  • hernando

    They load Key Lime Pie on the Note III? I don’t see any mention of rumors of it with the G2 atm.

  • Ellis90009

    Will not even consider this phone. 1st htc software sucks the biggest of dicks. 2nd probably no sd card slot 3rd no removable batterry. Probably going to get the note 3 unless those horible rumors about a unibody frame are true. I shutter at the thought of being forced by manufacturers to buy a more expencive model just to have decent storage. That is what sets samsung apart is letting us have options.

  • Richard

    Why would any company make a phone this large then cripple it with only 16GB of storage. If it has an SD slot then I guess that’s acceptable but pushing people on tiered data plans to cloud storage is only helping the carriers profits. This phone will likely fail if HTC launches it with the proposed specs.

  • Howie Kurtz

    I’m probably in the minority here but I hope HTC does not put this device out any time soon, they have already made great headway with the one and have a true S4 competitor right now by releasing a device like this even more powerful than a flagship that is still less than 2 months old is a bad move and could become them shooting themselves in the foot.
    However if I’m wrong and it works they will cut into Samsung finally and revive a once dying company…just wait as long as possible to put this out

    • Tommy Thompson

      This device wouldn’t be made to compete with the ONE, but rather compete with the phablets. Not everyone wants a 5.9″ device.

  • terrorist96

    I would potentially sell my DNA if these specs are accurate. And if it’s on Verizon.

    • Tommy Thompson

      Side power button would have to be a necessity on a device this size.

  • George264

    The only thing I could think that could be improved:
    Old button layout,
    8MP Ultrapixel(PLEASE HTC PLEASE)
    and slightly smaller size?
    5.5 is already HUGE
    5.9 is really stretching it.
    I have a difficult time putting the DNA in my pocket, love the One size.
    This phone is none the less a dream

  • TSY87

    HTC One “note” edition. I welcome you.

  • droidrazredge

    I think HTC made a Typo on the battery specification it’s probably more around 2300mAH

  • droidrazredge

    Oh something trying to take on the Moto X and steal its thunder! To bad it will probably get as much support from HTC as the blunderbolt, and Droid DNA is getting because HTC will release and replace this phone with the HTC Two 6 months later.

  • Brian

    i want it! don’t care if its 4 megapixel or 40 megapixel it will still be amazing. people need to realize this stuff has only been around for less than ten years and appreciate what is available nothing is perfect.

  • nvitone23

    think about it, this thing will be HUGE. 5.9 inch screen + space for physical nav buttons + space for front facing speakers = WAY TO BIG!

  • Chris Phillips

    I can handle the one not being on verizon. But if they pass on this beast….

  • coolsilver

    Nope. I’m keeping my GS4. Nice try HTC. No more Blunderbolt.

  • deadpenguins

    Blows my mind that there is ANY demand for a phone that is 6″. To me, that is just insane. To each his own.

  • im mad

    flexible displays HURRY up

  • Nagini

    Get rid of the ultra pixel camera and I’m in! Give it a 13 megapixel shooter!

    • NikolayE

      That and how about a bigger image sensor! This frikken thing is larger than most point-and-shoots, you could really figure out a way to put in a much bigger sensor in there. Now THAT would be ULTRA.

  • AJA0

    16gb.. LOLOLOLOLOLOL It better have a microSD

    • NikolayE

      At 5.9″, it probably uses a CF card. lol

  • joejoe5709

    Sounds like someone’s wet dream rather than reality.

  • DJyoSNOW

    It would seem the note 3 has some competition!!! I like so far how HTC is just a phone with out features I can’t fathom using.

  • Asmodai

    Personally if it’s greater than 5″ I count it as a tablet and I’d like it to have a 16:10 aspect ratio. If it’s 5″ or less it’s a phone and I prefer 16:9.

  • Leo

    How about 32gb memory and 3gb ram?

    • jak_341


  • TC

    Screw 5.9″, everyone should just carry around their laptop to make calls.

  • dannyWHITE

    What is the deal with displays getting bigger and BIGGER? I rather have 4.7 to 5 inch displays.

    • Steven Elliott

      Exactly. I’m at my personal limit with my S3.

    • LionStone

      Competition… there is a market for it. My cousin got a GN2, because its his only device, for everything, he’s a gamer… Me not so much, I have a N7, but many are loving the size for their everything device.

    • flosserelli

      There is obviously a demand for larger devices. One size does not fit all.

    • aQuickBit

      A lot of people could also save money and buy a mid range sized device instead of buying a big tablet and a small phone. They could get the best of both with one device (phablet). If they want a full sized tablet though (like me) they may rather have a smaller handheld phone that is for extreme portability. Also, just because the screen size is getting bigger doesn’t necessarily mean the device itself is getting bigger. That would mean the bezels are shrinking to the point where we may have a totally edge-to-edge display. Its like the GS3 to GS4…exact same dimensions yet the GS4 has a bigger display.

  • RaptorOO7

    Ok, HTC had my attention that is until I saw the 16GB of internal storage. GTFO, put 32GB in or go home. Samsung is already rumored to be pushing 32GB in the GN3 this fall and 32GB has to be the minimum.

    • LionStone

      Let’s hope they’ll be 2 versions, one with 16 and one with 32gb. I agree, 32 should be the minimum, especially since they utilize some of it yet advertise it otherwise!

  • XphoneTroll

    You sure that’s the right size of the battery lol

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      LMAO. ikr

  • jamie stevens


  • Steve Douglas

    More internal storage! 32G min… and SD card would be nice too…

  • Rob Mounts

    Could this be the device that HTC said that they would make a “Big” deal about for a Verizon release?

  • Deylune

    if Verizon passes on this, i won’t be surprised.

  • David Schendt

    Only pockets that will fit this phone…

    • The ignorance of some people amazes me.

      • David Schendt

        Please, elaborate…

        • DJyoSNOW

          Pretty sure he is one of the resident trolls. 🙁 guess it takes one to know one 😉

        • Meaning your picture is stupid

      • jose

        Coming from the guy that believes megapixels = better image quality.

        • 4 to 8 makes a huge difference. It’s been proven. don’t be stupid.

        • George264

          Megapixels provide SHARPER picture
          Not better image QUALITY
          The quality on the Ultrapixel is great, it’s just not as sharp, which makes its daylight quality worse.

          • Jason

            Actually it does neither. It depends on what the CMOS sensor itself is capable of capturing. If you have a sensor that can only do 5MP (4:3), yet you’re upscaling in software to 13MP (16:9), it’s not gonna be pretty without some pretty amazing algorithms. Even then, quality will suffer greatly. Now if you had a high quality CMOS sensor and DOWNSCALED to 5MP (4:3), it’d typically look better than a lower quality sensor.

            Usually, higher resolution does = better quality, but not when it comes to CMOS sensors because they are the hardware limitation. You can’t take great pictures on a standard camera without a great lens. The same is true in the digital world. You need a high quality CMOS sensor, and those are usually too bulky to fit inside a smartphone. We’re getting there though.

            Then you have f/stops. *sigh*

            Educate yourselves.

    • deadpenguins

      Damn, those are some slick knickers.

  • the entire front of this device will have to be screen if I am even to consider this thing as my next phone….i thought the Note 2 was big….Yikes

  • Deylune

    16GB of internal Storage for a device like this?? that’s terrible

    • Steve Douglas

      I agree! My note 2 is almost full (16G too)and I have maybe 1 or 2 games on it… 32 would be a minimum.. The option for 64G would be beastly!

      • jak_341

        Perhaps even 128MB and 3MB RAM.

        • Keith Myers

          You mean 128 GB of Storage and 3 GB of RAM (not MB)

        • QuarkZ26

          I’m glad you’re not responsible of the specs department! 😉

  • hkklife

    GTFO! 16Gb internal storage is a MONUMENTAL FAIL! A Snapdragon 800 beast and I can only load a handful of modern 3D games on it!?! HTC might as well start the liquidation proceedings.

    Now, give this thing 64Gb internal storage, put in a “real” camera and make a Nexus Experience version and you might have the all-time best Android device!

    I still think a stylus is pointless. I’d rather have an Optimus G Pro style phablet and use the stylus silo space for a bigger battery or a microSD card slot.

    • NikolayE

      Exactly. Perilously what I think. Screw the Stylus, it is useless. If you are one of those people that uses them, you can buy one and stuff it in your pocket or something.

      I agree. Storage is cheap; stick more in. People want it.

      A “real” camera would be nice, but on a device this big, they should actually make the sensor of bigger size. I am sure you can almost DOUBLE the size of the sensor with this much room. Plus, make it 13MP. This whole webcam resolution is stupid.

      Even how it is now though it would do just fine. I think that they will be able to sell a lot of devices.

  • Geoff Johnson

    It will probably be released right before the Note 3

    • Blue Sun

      I’m guessing they will be releasing this device 2-3 months after the Note III.

      • Geoff Johnson

        I think before, to try and steal marketshare from people that are waiting for the Note 3. Just like they did with the One and S4.

        • Blue Sun

          I’d totally agree with you if this was rumored to be a 4.2.2 device. You don’t think that KLP release date will push the release of this device back to the end of November? I, & a lot of other people are assuming that the Note III will be 4.2.2 upon release since we haven’t heard otherwise & that is what Samsung has been releasing on the last few devices..

        • FAL_Fan

          Only to fail miserably. In the 2 months that the One was out they sold only 5 million units whereas the S4 sold over 10 million in less than a month…without being on Verizon. I do have to agree that they may make the attempt to steal the market share though.

          • flosserelli

            I doubt this device would “fail miserably”. It addresses 2 key features missing from the One, namely expandable memory and a battery that will (likely) last a full day without gimping. If HTC makes the stylus a useful feature and not just a gimmicky “me-too” addon, I think they could have a real contender here.

  • justin

    If only Verizon picks this up…….

  • Trueblue711

    Maybe this is what Verizon has been holding off for…

  • chris125

    Cue the whiny fanboys about the 16gb of storage

    • EC8CH

      storage fanboys?

      • DroidzFX

        yes they are the worst kind. They can never get enough.

    • Eric

      • dmagicp


    • CrimsonBlur

      Is it really too much to ask to get the same (preferably more) storage than my 2 year old device? Hell, I have a 8 year old portable device with more storage than that. Stagnation is enemy here, not the fanbase.

  • DNA/Butterfly 2. WANT

  • RWW

    At that big screen and battery size, the WEIGHT of the device needs to be part of the specs list too.

  • Ashish Raj

    16GB of internal storage??? I hope they provide SD card support!

    • Blue Sun

      It still won’t matter unless KLP brings back “Apps to SD” ability.

    • Yep

      I’m sorry but in a device that big, how is there no room for more storage? Eff the cloud. Seriously. Eff it right in the a.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    sounds pricey lol.

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      how quickly we forget about the moto x. Maybe I will stick with the n4/note 2. This is too much for me.

  • Fiorta

    Verizon version will have a locked bootloader and tons of bloat.

    • Ian

      Goes without saying

    • chris125

      All versions will have bloat. No carrier versions are safe from bloat.

    • mustbepbs

      No no no. Verizon will pass it up.

      • EC8CH

        exactly… VZW is obviously too good for this phone.

      • Yep

        And that makes me sad face so hard. We are all Tina to Verizon’s Ike.

      • Raj Bhatt

        At this point, I am hoping for ANYTHING new with stock Android on VZW. They could introduce a bananaphone with stock Android and I’d stay with them.

        It’s looking more and more like I’m gonna switch to T-Mo when my contract is up in Oct. I’ve been with Verizon since 1999.

        • QuarkZ26

          Ring ring ring banana phoooone

    • Sam

      …and 4GBs of storage, and permanent wifi notification.

  • EC8CH

    On screen buttons or GTFO!

    • nvitone23

      yea, especially with a screen of that size

    • It could have on screen buttons and out of the world specs. But if it has a 4mp camera I will buy it and slam it on the phucking ground. Completely unnecessary to put fisher Price cameras in a high end device.

      • Brian P.

        You heard it from the “Knower of All” himself, Tyler Durden Pitt….{*_*}

    • Greyhame

      That would be awesome. That way the stylus could be used for navigation as well.

    • Nagini

      Forget on screen buttons! They cause too much burn in and get in the way.

      • nvitone23

        I will admit, they do cause a little burn in…

  • Dat Battery

    • Dat display! I think I’m in love with the IDEA of this device. Crossing fingers for this one lol

      • Shaunwin

        Google Experience?!

      • Blue Sun

        This or the Note III are likely to be my next mobile device. I like the idea of having a tough choice.

        • Exactly. Options are great when you are the buyer. 🙂

        • QuarkZ26

          Yep, i am pretty excited about the Note 3, but would easily fall for a phablet from HTC with the same specs and front speakers.

          • Blue Sun

            Good call. Front facing speakers with Beats Audio wouldn’t be a bad feature to include.

    • ImmaDroid

      That is a nice battery! but I’m sick of the 16gb being the only options in alot of phones lately. That gets eaten up in no time

      • NikolayE

        I agree. Considering how cheep memory is nowadays, they should include a 32GB MINIMUM on all devices now. I mean, just a 32GB microSD card only costs $24! I know that they would use something a little faster and more durable, but it still wouldn’t cost much more than $30 for a 32GB memory.

        • ImmaDroid

          Yea and it cost us $50 to $100 extra from manufacturers for the upgrade from 16gb to 32gb which is absurd.. Yup you would thing now a days they should start at 32gb, then go to 64gb even 128gb.
          Also,with a 16gb phone, you get like 4 or more gb’s less because of the OS and apps. so you end up with 10-12gb when you start the phone up

          • NikolayE

            Not to forget that the formatted capacity is always a little less.

          • michael arazan

            16 gb to 32 gb = +$100 (16 gb more)

            32gb to 64 gb = +$100 (32gb more)

            There isn’t even any logic to the pricing

        • ImmaDroid

          Look at the Nexus 10. 16GB $399 – 32GB $499. $100 difference, insane.
          Even iPad mini 16GB $329- 32GB $429- 64GB- $529

          Way too much money for such a small amount of memory. With a hard drive You can get 1 terabyte for $69.99.
