Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC is rumoured to be working on a 5in phone/tablet called the DLX, according to an unidentified HTC source nicknamed "Football". The device would rival the Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus Vu.
If the source is to be believed, the smartphone will be the first to feature a 1080p display, that’s a 5in 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, or a pixel density of 440PPI, almost a third higher than that of the iPhone 4/4S/5.
The DLX is said to be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly the LTE-capable MSM8960), with 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front facing one and a massive non-removable 2,500mAh battery.
The biggest smartphone currently on offer from HTC is the HTC One X/X+/XL, at 4.7in, which means it is possible that, just like Motorola did with the Razr i/M, HTC has managed to squeeze a slightly bigger screen into the same chassis.
