The trend toward reverse-vertically-challenged phone/tablet hybrids seems to be picking up more steam. Not only is Samsung & Huawei supposedly working on ginormous 6.x-inch and larger phablet devices, now it looks like Sony may get in on the act too. As you can see in the pic above, a bezel for a new Sony device is being displayed in a factory photo-op. The device measures out at 6.44-inches, which seems to "inch" closer toward a tablet than a phone. Supposedly, according to the source of the leaked pic, this will be the display for a new 1080p Sony smartphone/phablet. Of course, it could be a big fraud too, which happens from time to time on the interwebs.

Sound off: real or fake? If it is real, would you want such a device?

I beleive it. I think the manufacturers will continue to make them bigger until the new model that is the biggest isn't bought. I'm curious to what they think what considers a success is? Samsung is happy with 5 million Note 2 phablets.

Yes. It will be just like the 90s to mid 2000s. Baggy pants will be in again. I can't wait to wear my 4X shirt and have my pants all the way past my buttocks. Haha. Then of course, your pockets will have a rip because of the price tag.

Btw, most of my close friends have the note 2. Man, I hate it when they ask me to take the picture for them. Every time I hold it, it seems like i'm going to drop it. It is just too thin for my liking. Maybe it just me getting used to having a qwerty keyboard :)
