With HTC scheduling a media event for Sept. 19, there's been much speculation as to what the company will unveil at its NYC gathering. One possibility is the persistently-rumored 5-inch device that's supposedly headed to Verizon in the U.S. Earlier in the week we saw some leaked images purporting to show this black and red smartphone from the side. Today brings another blurry-cam shot, this time of the device's front face.
Being of poor quality, the photo gives little away, but we can discern a few things. Firstly, the phone seems to have ditched the usual HTC design language -- it doesn't look much like an HTC One phone. Second, based on the button placement and size, as well as the thin horizontal bezel, it's likely we're looking at a large-screened smartphone.
Chinese site Techorz, which originally posted the photo, reports that the device will ship with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 1080p or 720p display. That matches up with what's been rumored, although the site also mentions that this could be the "Endeavor C2," something we're pretty sure is another phone altogether. Reports in the past month have indicated that the "Endeavor C2" or "One X+" is a refreshed version of HTC's early 2012 flagship.
So we still know very little about the phone that HTC may or may not unveil on Sept. 19. Regardless, we'll be live from New York on the day to bring you full coverage of whatever's announced.
