If 720p displays weren’t already enough with PPI ratios sitting in the low 300’s, reports are circulating that HTC could launch a smartphone with a 5 inch, 1080p display. The resulting pixel density? 440, well ahead of anything currently available.
This device from HTC could launch as soon as September or October according to DigiTimes’ sources. Their source states a odd resolution of 1794 x 1080 but we are working on the assumption this is indeed a Full HD panel with 126 pixels removed for Android’s on-screen navigation buttons.
This information falls in line with a GLBenchmark result from a month ago and reveals that the 5 inch device could house a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset paired with an Adreno 320 GPU.
KitGuru says: While the various sources may not be the most reliable, it does appear as if HTC plans to launch a 5 inch smartphone with an impressive 1080p display later this year.
