As some past rumours hinted, HTC is planning a global variant of the Verizon DROID DNA [specifications]. An image of the global edition of the HTC DLX (to be launched as the HTC Deluxe?) has now surfaced courtesy of @evleaks:

Rumoured global version of HTC DLX

We can expect the HTC DLX to sport very similar specifications to the DROID DNA including the 5-inch 1080p display and 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

There is no word yet on when HTC could formally announce the HTC Deluxe/DLX. Will HTC wait until CES 2013 or MWC 2013 or could we see it earlier?

Another image of the rumoured 5-inch 1080p HTC DLX has been leaked courtesy of @Football4PDA. There are no new details to go with the picture unfortunately except to reaffirm that it is headed to Verizon.

Rumoured HTC DLX for Verizon

Past rumours have suggested a number of names for the device also known as HTC 6435LVW. These include Droid Incredible X, DIX, DLX, and more recently HTC DROID DNA. It remains to be seen which if any of these will become the official name.

There is still no word yet on availability and pricing.

HTCThe HTC DIx has been the topic of rumours for a while. Known also as the HTC 6435LVW and the HTC DLX, it has resurfaced again today. @Football4PDA, who has a pretty good track record, today tweeted about its specifications (and calling it the DLX). We can expect the following:

    • Processor: 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
    • Operating system: Google Android 4.1.2
    • Display: 5-inch Full HD
    • Memory: 1.5GB RAM
    • Storage: 16GB ROM
    • Rear-facing camera: 12MP
    • Front-facing camera: 2MP
    • Battery: Non-removable 2,500mAh

These latest specifications line up nicely with those of earlier rumours.

The HTC DIx appears headed to Verizon as the DROID Incredible X. It also appears that HTC could release variants as the HTC One X5 and a Nexus variant called the Google Nexus 5.

There is no word yet on availability and pricing.

Update: A tweet from @evleaks about the HTC DLX also popped up today with very similar details. We’ve updated the specs above with a few new details like the presence of NFC. Is an announcement in the air?

Rumour: HTC DIx specifications revealed?

HTCIf the latest rumour is to be believed, the oft-rumoured HTC dlx may not be. Instead, it appears that the HTC 6435LVW, last seen in blurry pictures, is in fact the HTC DIx. A “trusted source” has told HTC Source that it will indeed come with a 5-inch 1080p HD 480ppi display and revealed some new specification details.

The report indicates that the HTC DIx will come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 1.5GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. A second notification LED for alerts will be located on the back of the device near the camera. Sadly, it appears at this time that the HTC DIx will not come with active pen support or a microSD card slot for external storage. The battery could also be non-removable.

Earlier rumours suggested that the HTC DIx would come with a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor and a display offering “only” 418ppi. These latest specifications suggest that HTC may have decided to up its game with this device.

The official name of the HTC 6435LVW branding has not been revealed yet. One suggestion is that it could be called the DROID Incredible X (hence the DIx acronym) when finally announced, perhaps as early as September 19th.

An unnamed HTC smartphone has been spotted courtesy of two blurry images. They reveal very little but an all-touch handset with a number of red accents on the sides and around the rear camera lens. There also appears to be a Beats Audio logo on the back.

One theory suggests that the device is headed to Verizon. If so, it could be the HTC dlx which bears model number HTC6435LVW and could come with a 5-inch 1080p HD display.

Red accents don’t necessarily mean a Verizon device though. For example, the black HTC One S sports a red accent around its camera. A number of HTC devices have been rumoured (including the HTC One X+ and HTC One XXL) recently and this could also be any of these.

Any thoughts?

Rumour: HTC working on 5-inch 1080p smartphone for September-October release

HTCThe HTC PM63100 with its 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 720p display may not be HTC’s next flagship device. That honour may be reserved to a different device according to a report by Digitimes. They report that HTC is readying a device with a 5-inch 1080p display for launch in the September or October time frame.

The report adds that the display will have the rather odd resolution of 1794 by 1080 pixels. If you add in 126 additional vertical lines that Android now reserves for its onscreen navigation buttons, you end up with a display running at 1920 by 1080 or full HD.

Rumours of such a device go back a number of months back to a leaked Verizon product roadmap. If accurate, this device could also come with HTC Sense 5 and a Scribe pen. Could this device be none other than the rumoured HTC dlx (also known as the HTC6435LVW)?

HTC dlx flagship smartphone with 1080p display gets benchmarked

A new HTC tablet codenamed Vertex is not the only new HTC device to be spotted on a benchmark site in the last few days. A new HTC smartphone has surfaced on GLBenchmarks and its specifications are sure to impress. Codenamed dlx, it bears model number HTC6435LVW, suggesting that it could be a follow up to the HTC Rezound (model HTC6425).

HTC dlx GLBenchmark results

The site reports that the HTC dlx will use a Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 chipset but results are significantly higher than what we have seen achieved with this chipset in the past. Droid-Life suggests instead that this could be the faster MSM8960T chipset with Adreno 320GPU. The HTC dlx scores substantially higher than the Qualcomm chipset HTC one X variant:

The benchmark results also reveal the presence of a 1080p HD display and Android 4.0.4. The ‘android.os.Build.FINGERPRINT’ suggests it is headed to Verizon.

Together all this evidence lines up nicely with earlier rumours which suggested that Verizon would offer a new flagship device later this year bearing a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with Adreno 320 GPU, a 5-inch 1080p HD non-Pentile display, HTC Sense 5 and a Scribe pen.
