Details of what to expect from HTC’s first-ever phablet have surfaced online, as the Taiwanese phone-maker looks to a larger form factor to help arrest its declining market share.
According to serial leaker Evleaks, the handset dubbed the HTC T6 will pack a whopping 5.9-inch, 1080p HD screen. That’s a vast bit of pocket tech by anyone’s standards.
A very Galaxy Note-style stylus will also be on board. However, presumably in a bid to differentiate its pen-substitute, HTC is promising that this will offer a more “premium experience”.
As you might expect for a phone due later this year, the T6 is mooted to run the as-yet-unseen Key Lime Pie version of Android and pack a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and the same Ultrapixel camera that stars on the HTC One.
A fingerprint scanner is also on board at the rear of the handset, while the front houses a 2.1-megapixel snapper for selfies and video calls.
Design details remain under wraps. But we think you can bank on the phone not straying too far from HTC’s industrial design principles. And a aluminium unibody exterior is a pretty safe bet too, we’d say.
