HTC Working on a 5-inch Device with 1080p Display?

 Seen here is the HTC One X with its 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display.

HTC may soon join the phablet (smartphones with screen sizes between 5 to 7-inch) party in September or October with a 5-inch device. Quoting information from sources, DigiTimes claims that the 5-inch device will have a 1080p display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Apparently, Samsung's success with its Galaxy Note and LG's foray into the phablet scene seem to have prompted HTC to consider a similar move if it does not want to be left out.

Earlier in July, leaked benchmarks indicate that an unknown HTC device with a 1080p display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz processor. Its benchmark performance surpassed that of the current flagship model, the One X and its arch rival, the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Samsung will be unveiling the next Galaxy Note at the Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on 29th August. The device is rumored to sport a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, an improved 8-megapixel camera sensor, 1.5GB RAM and a new Exynos 5250 dual-core processor. LG will also be bringing its 5-inch Optimus Vu to Singapore in Q4, which runs on a dual-core processor and measures 8.5mm thin. 

If the rumors turn out to be true, we are expecting a three cornered fight for the top spot in the phablet race among HTC, LG and Samsung by end 2012.
