HTC's line-up of smartphones continues to draw in tough competition from all corners. Following the success of its One series, rumour has it that the electronics major is rolling out another speed demon codenamed DLX, which popped on GLBenchmark with high powered specification and is on its way to Verizon.
At present, the device is marked with model number HTC6435LVW. The device will reportedly feature a large 1794x1080 resolution touchscreen, Android 4.0.4 Ice cream Sandwich OS, 4G LTE support and a quad-core Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset that's clocked to 1.5 GHz. Other than that, the device will reportedly be the first HTC handset to feature buttons on the screen instead of the usual physical home button.
The CPU on the phone hit 121.1 Fps on Egypt Offscreen test and 110 Fps for the Pro benchmark, which is 20 percent higher than Samsung Galaxy S3 and twice that of HTC One X. The handset is also said to support Adreno 320 graphics and World Mode LTE/HSPA+ radio.
In comparison, Samsung Galaxy S3 has a relatively lower 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and sports a quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor. In terms of performance and screen resolution, HTC's new smartphone certainly packs a punch. It's also predicted that the device may sport a display ranging from 4.6-inch to a plus 5-inch screen.
Meanwhile, Samsung is anticipating an expansion of their Galaxy S3 flagship handsets, with the company hinting at several colors for the third-generation device. As of now, the Pebble Blue and Marble White models are selling well, and Samsung has even unveiled a new Garnet Red version that will soon hit AT&T network in the US. According a PockeLint report, Samsung employees have pointed out several potential colour variants that may come in the near future.
Other than that, Galaxy S3 owners can now opt for Mugen Power Batteries' all new HLI-i9300SL Mugen Power 2300mAh Extended Battery for prolonged battery life of their devices.
