HTC T6 Phablet Aims at Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Also Coming with Stylus

HTC phablet Galaxy Note 3 rival

It seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have a powerful rival this year, as the rumor mill speculates that the Taiwan-based company is also readying a phablet, codenamed HTC T6
After we’ve seen a lot of smartphone manufacturers launching devices with screens larger than 5 inches, and with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 reportedly coming with a 5.9-inch full HD display, HTC is on the verge of launching another device to compete against Sammy’s high-end devices. As I was mentioning above there are reports saying that HTC will launch its first phablet and the terminal is known internally as HTC T6.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was not officially launched yet, the imminent Android-powered phablet developed by HTC aims to bite a big chunk of the market share of the successor of Galaxy Note 2. First of all, HTC T6 will be developed to integrate support for stylus interaction, besides the common finger input.
Reports are indicating that, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the HTC phablet will boast a 5.9-inch full HD display (most likely a Super LCD3 unit), while being underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and Adreno 330 GPU. The list of technical specifications also includes 2 GB of RAM and, of course, the 4 megapixel UltraPixel camera sensor borrowed from the HTC One, all together with BoomSound speakers.
It seems though that the internal flash storage will be limited to 16 GB, but opposed to the HTC one the smartphone will come with a microSD card slot that will allow an expansion of 64 GB. The front-facing camera will have a 2.1 megapixel sensor, while the battery of the Galaxy Note 3 rival will be a 3,300 mAh unit.
Anyway, the most surprising rumor is about the Android version delivered with the HTC phablet. With an alleged release date set for early fall, HTC T6 will run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie out of the box. Anyway, I am advising you to take the rumor with a pinch of salt, as, in my opinion, the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will not see the light of day sooner than October, when Google will celebrate Android’s 5th birthday.
There’s no doubt that the HTC phablet will pack the company’s proprietary Sense interface, therefore we should expect features like BinkFeed, Zoe, and Beats Audion enhancement. Sources say that HTC will also launch a wide range of accessories for its Galaxy Note 3 rival, which will include fingerprint scanner or a cover that integrates an extra battery.
Anyway, all we can do now is wait for a couple of more months and see whether the rumors talking about the HTC phablet rival for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 were accurate.
Would you choose a HTC phablet that comes with the features and aluminium body of the One over the Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Please speak your mind in the comments section.
