    Some supposedly leaked pics of an unknown HTC device seem to suggest that they are working on their own 5-inch phablet style device. At a glance, it just looks like any other phone spied by Mr. Blurrycam, but if you look a bit closer, the dimensions seem to suggest a device that is larger than your typical 4.7-inch flagship. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    What do you guys think? Could a 5-inch phone be the new standard size?

    Update: Also, this phone looks a tad bit like the one that Shadez posted on Saturday, so it is very possible it is the same thing.

    Is it really that hard to take a good photo?

    If you "look closely" it "appears to be larger than 4.7"? Seriously? What do you do, measure the blurry HTC logo and then try to extrapolate? Sounds perfectly scientific to me.

    To me, it looks like every other HTC device. It's no wonder HTC is failing, they are never the leader in anything innovative, but rather always bringing up the rear.
