An HTC One X 5-inch model press shot has been leaked onto the internet Tuesday.
HTC is expected to unveil a new device at its media event that takes place Thursday, and it is believed that this is probably the smartphone in the leaked image. The rumored name for this handset is the HTC One X5, but that is still subject to change.
Rumored specifications for the HTC One X5 include a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, and a 5-inch 1080p display. The device's screen should easily top what is already being offered in the Android market.
Specifications for a similar smartphone called the HTC One X+ were revealed by an XDA Developer recently.
This device also could be the successor to the original HTC One X that launched with Ice Cream Sandwich earlier this year.
According to the leaked information, the new handset will measure 134.36 x 69.9x9.3mm and weigh 129 grams. It will also pack an Nvidia AP37 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 32GB of internal storage and 1GB RAM.
The OneX+ also is expected to run Android 4.1 JellyBean and use HTC's own Sense 4.5 UI. The battery is said to remain at 1800mAh which is not such great news for those who had power issues with the original One X.
The source responsible for the leak has a good track record when it comes to HTC devices and recently revealed that the HTC Accord will be powered by Windows Phone X8.
Both of these leaks could be pointing to the same device as HTC is in need of something that will stir up the masses and help it against competition from Samsung and Apple.
Apple's iPhone 5 quickly became the hottest smartphone in the market when it was unveiled last week bumping the Galaxy S3 out of the top spot leaving HTC's impressive One X smartphone ranking in third.
