The folks from HTC have been busy brewing up their own 5-inch phablet to hopefully take on the Galaxy Note II, LG’s Intuition, and dare I even say the iPhone 5. We’ve seen a few blurry leaks in the past but today a press render could have spilled the beans just days before the official announcement.

HTC has a press event scheduled for later this week where we’ll be seeing what’s next from the company, and this could be exactly that. We’ve been hearing rumors of their own 1920 x 1080p resolution packing 5-inch smartphone tablet hybrid for a few weeks. This leak seems to not only confirm the device, but is calling it the HTC One X5.

Previous rumors have hinted at a Verizon release, and with those red accents accompanying that large display things are lining up quite nicely. We’ve been hearing other rumors including an HTC One X+ with an improved and faster 1.6 GHz Tegra 3 quad-core and 4G LTE for AT&T, but this looks to be all Verizon. Big Red passed on the One series initially and this could be why.

We have a feeling this will have that rumored 1080p display and also be packing Qualcomm’s new 1.5 GHz S4 Pro quad-core processor as well as Verizon 4G LTE. Add all of that into a sleek 5-inch smartphone phablet and the Galaxy Note II might actually have some stiff competition. We’re expecting Sense UI 4.5 along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to be powering the new One X5. Stay tuned for full details as they get announced during HTC’s event on Wednesday.

    how can it be a rival without a pen and let alone not come with a kick stand when HTC is solid on Kick stands as of late. Plus it looks like a total photoshop fake.

    • Yes, It’s my design work, release in 9/10.
      Here is my design works album.

        I must say spectacular work on the Flyer’s back it looks gorgeous, the front top and bottom bezel should be smaller and asymmetrical though!

    the fact is if you continue to wait for the next new thing after the company has just released new devices that you were waiting for, you than are likely to hear more rumors of more powerful teched out devices to arrive later, so you continue to wait and than when the time comes you hear more rumors and than again you continue to wait…its a viscous and time consuming cycle…just get a phone that you like now and live with it, or continue drueling over specs for the future, buy one now and continue to live in today again…

  • Fake or not the designs are amazing!I hope we see devices with this design
