So we’re only a couple of days away from HTC announcing their new products – whether it be Windows Phone devices, or Android devices, or maybe both remains to be seen. With that being said, if you have been following the news for a while, you might have heard rumors of a HTC “phablet” device that is said to compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note (and possibly LG’s Optimus Vu as well). Not much is known about the device for now, but the folks at HTC Source have managed to get their hands on some tips about the device, some of which seems to contradict earlier rumors.
For starters it seems that the device has been given the codename, HTC Dix, which some have speculated could mean the HTC Droid Incredible X destined for Verizon. It is rumored to feature a 480ppi display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a secondary LED notification light placed at the back near the camera. This seems to contradict earlier specs which revealed a dual-core processor and a 418ppi display. Of course we’d prefer it if the quad-core rumors were true, but for now we’ll take it with a grain of salt and be sure to check back with us on the 19th to see if the rumors pan out!
