Until now there was no competitor for Samsung Galaxy Note line of phablet devices from Samsung. However, with HTC’s announcement on a new HTC T6 phablet device, the unreleased Galaxy Note 3 is soon going to face tough competition. In fact, HTC is designing the HTC T6 to take on the Galaxy Note 3. The HTC T6 rumor came out on Tuesday from the Taiwanese company.
In terms of business, the last couple of years have been quite dismal for HTC as their sales have gone down dismally. The flagship model HTC One truly resurrected the company and transformed it into a tough competitor for Samsung which is ruling the smartphone arena. The HTC One was released weeks before the Galaxy S4. It is only because HTC did not invest much in advertising the HTC One, the phone could not more sales than the Galaxy S4. However, it’s still one of the most preferred smartphones of the year.
HTC now wants to compete with Galaxy Note line of phones through its latest offering, the HTC T6. Just like the competitor, the HTC T6 is going to be housed with a huge display of 5.9inches. The full HD display will support the usage of stylus. The company aims to deliver ‘premium experience’ through the stylus which will be a pen with an ultra-thin tip.
The Galaxy Note 3 is going to powered with octacore CPU and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. On the other hand, the HTC T6 is going to run a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Until, there is no official update on Android 5.0. In fact, Android is yet to roll out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS which has been in the pipeline since quite some time. Since the Android 5.0 is not available yet, you won’t get to see the HTC T6 this year.
The HTC T6 is going to be powered with a 2GB RAM. The internal storage capacity will be 16GB. It will come with an external microSD slot. The capacity of which is not yet known but it is going to similar to what you will see on Galaxy Note 3.
The phablet is codenamed as T6; however, the real name of the device will be rolled later on. The design of the device is going to be borrowed from the HTC One. It will come with BoomSound speakers which mean the phone is going to come with an exclusive audio CPU and powerful front-facing speakers.
The front-facing camera is going to be of 2.1MP. At the rear, the phablet has got a UltraPixel camera. Also, the phone is going to deliver long-lasting performance through its 3300mAh battery. It will also provide you with protective battery of 1250mAh. The most outstanding feature of the phone is the biometric fingerprint reader placed at the backside of the phone.
We will have to wait until we get more official information from the HTC’s camp to confirm on the specs. By the way, the T6 flagship model is going be released, so until that time the rumor mill is going to release all kinds of rumors. We will keep you updated on it as we get some concrete information on the HTC T6.
