HTC Note 5-inch Phablet To Arrive At Verizon Next Summer?


HTC Note 5-inch Phablet To Arrive At Verizon Next Summer?

The journalists of BGR were lucky enough to hear the voice of some source inside Verizon, who told them that we can expect the Samsung Galaxy S3 to debut at the US-based carrier this summer, along with a mysterious 5-inch HTC phablet. The source close to Verizon not only confirmed that a 5-inch HTC smartphone will debut, but also talked about the technical specifications of the handset.

Previous rumors said that Samsung Galaxy S III, the smartphone that will be officially unveiled on May 3rd at Samsung Unpacked 2012 event in London, will not be available at Verizon. It seems that the carrier wanted to brand the smartphone as Droid or not to offer it at all, but that’s not the case as sources close to the matter confirmed that the Samsung flagship will be on Verizon’s store shelves next summer.

Same source indicated that Motorola Droid RAZR HD will also join Verizon’s line up. Droid RAZR HD is the 720p display and 13 megapixel camera version of the thinnest smartphone currently available on the market. The device also comes with Droid RAZR MAXX’ 3,300 mAh batter and a 4.6-inch display. Rumor has it that the chipset hid underneath the slim case of RAZR HD will a Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5 GHz, one of the most popular choices for smartphone manufacturers lately.

But Verizon’s special guest is definitely a 5-inch terminal unofficially dubbed HTC Note. As you probably guessed HTC Note will be compete against Samsung Galaxy Note and LG Optimus Vu phablets, both sporting a 5+ inch display. The anonymous source reported that HTC’s phablet will come with 1080p display resolution, next-gen Snapdragon chipset (likely quad-core) with GPU Adreno 320 and HTC Scribe technology with support for stylus.

I don’t know which one is the most important aspect: Verizon retailing Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC working on a 5-inch smartphone – tablet hybrid?
