HTC has been rumored to be working on a superphone that is aimed at competing with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The device, HTC DLX, could end up being the next big thing if HTC play its card correctly, because going up against Samsung will be no easy feat.
If the leaked specifications are to be believed, the HTC DLX won't be able to match the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, well, at least on paper:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 according to these specs, is the more powerful device. With a faster processor, more RAM, bigger battery, and bigger display, the HTC DLX could be in for a fight to stay relevant.
The tipster who tweeted this information did not specify a source of these claims. Furthermore, there was mention of the HTC DLX availability to be in China, Germany and the US on Verizon (LTE version).
Just when you thought the leaked specs of the device was enough, benchmarks began to roll in. The benchmark results prove how powerful this phablet could be. However, compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, it is unable to keep up. Nevertheless, with a score of 11,510, it is more than capable of holding its own in completing every day task that does not require mass nuclear power.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 scored 12,000, while the Galaxy Note scored 13,000 in the same benchmark test. When all devices are compared in real world use, the difference shouldn't be noticeable unless one is actually looking out for it.
