New version of HTC One to launch with a larger screen


The latest round of rumors from the HTC camp are saying that a newer HTC One may be launching soon. The catch? It’ll have a larger screen, supposedly between 5 and 6 inches. Now, before you flip out and bash HTC for replacing a flagship device so quickly, (again) the rumors suggest that this larger phone would just supplement the One, like what Samsung does with their Galaxy S and Galaxy Note devices. And considering the HTC Butterfly and Droid DNA had 5 inch screens, this could very well be a slightly bumped up version of those devices. We have seen that speculated DLXPLUS floating around in Verizon systems for a while, remember? Anything’s possible.

At this point, this is still a pretty hazy rumor, so take it with a grain of salt. I’d like to see HTC launch a competitive phablet, but I think they’d run the risk of over-saturating their market if they release a One Mini and One Plus right on the heels of the HTC One really just starting to take off.

    Gosh talk about being all over the place dam htc. They definitely need something to put themselves on the map in the Phablet category. Whatever they make won’t top no Galaxy Note 2 or upcoming Galaxy Note 3 that’s for sure.

      The note 2 is a pice of shit. maybe the 3 will not lag so hard. lg optimus g pro is so much better.

    5 million in sales and they start to get cocky too? HTC, I suggest you market the hell out of the ‘ONE’ first, and squeeze all that you can from it in sales before releasing another device. I believe the HTC One is future proof and can still compete with any device that is released later in 2013, 2014, 2015 and probably 2016 (Okay maybe not that distant future :) ).

    Maybe its because of the latest rumors of a HTC ONE (Google edition), it does make sense. If the screen is larger they removed the physical button and replaced it with on-screen (OS) buttons to match the Android button standard!!
