HTC Deluxe DLX “leaked” images

It’s time for another device “leak” in the form of the HTC Deluxe DLX. We’ve already seen this device in its HTC J Butterfly (or Droid DNA in the US) form when it was shown off a few weeks ago. Well the Deluxe DLX is looking like the name it will have everywhere else.

Keeping in line with the already known specs, the DLX will be touting:

  • 5 inch 1080p screen, 440ppi
  • Quad-Core Qualcomm S4 Pro chip @ 1.5GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • Beats Audio

The Japanese and US versions of the handset also pack Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE and CDMA/GSM/UMTS/GPRS and a microSD slot, so expect them there too. It’s interesting to see that there is no mention of storage, for any of the named variations of the device. But given the high end specs of the handset that are already known, we probably aren’t too far off the mark by saying a minimum of 32GB will probably be onboard and the microSD slot will support another 64GB.

From the images, you can see three different handset colours being shown off; black, white and brown.

Rumours have the device pegged for a December 6th reveal by HTC and a consumer release early in the New Year.

With the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S IV packing a similar spec punch, and the S III being a consumer favourite, it could all come down to which brand consumers feel the most confident with. That and cost!

That is a pointlessly high PPI that will waste battery. If it weren't for that, it'd be a great phone!

I want at least 1200 ppi.

Gorgeous phones! Maybe Microsoft should have let HTC make a Windows 8 tablet, though HTC abandoned the Android tablet game.

Yes, you can do it. One more step and I can have my 8-core, 6.2-inch 2560x1600 phone. /S

On a serious note; when this madness is going to end?

Why do you have a problem with more powerful phones?

It's still a friggin' phone, FFS. If I'd really want a portable PC always with me, I'd also want at least desktop Linux running on it.

You could just get a cheaper phone that's less powerful then. You can run a proper Linux desktop on some phones, however you rally wouldn't want to unless it was docked to something.

Because it stifles innovation. These companies keep boosting specs that are already plenty good enough and releasing only a handful of extra software features with each new phone (save for Samsung, which has actually release big, innovative software upgrades).

What they should really do is work harder on the software.

Obviously I'm speaking from a consumer point of view. I realise the above will never actually happen because its simply not profitable.

In what world do you live where better hardware equals LESS innovation? Should we also blame Intel when people don't take advantage of their faster and faster processors?

HTC, like every other OEM do great things by making better and faster phones, It's up to software houses to make the software to take advantage of it.

It's HTC that create the software overlay for their phones, so it's THEIR job to make software that takes advantage of it. Ever heard of Sense?

Companies are releasing tiny upgrades to the software and constantly improving upon hardware that's already good enough. The last generation of phones (HTC Sensation, Galaxy S2, iPhone 4S) were very fast. I didn't really see anybody complain about the performance of these phones.

Sticking meatier upgraded parts in each device is NOT innovating. It is basically re-selling a slightly improved version of the previous device experience. Good for profit, not for consumers.

I'm NOT saying that the hardware shouldn't be improved upon, just that it's the software that requires the most attention.

I always find it interesting that once a manufacturer like Samsung or HTC design and build the killer phone like these or the sIII/sIV they release reasonable but not their best work when the build a windows phone 8 device???

I wonder what the "reasonable" justification for that would be...even though im pretty sure I know why this is the case...interesting

They can't put their own bloated ui's into windows phone. Heck they can't add anything unless they pay Microsoft like Nokia got a deal done to have its own nokia apps.

Actually there are some exclusive apps on samsung and HTC windows phones.
HTC has flashlight, photo enhancer, and converter, and samsung's got music hub, media hub, etc.

What's makes even less sense is how this device and the 8X cost the same amount on Verizon. : |

HTC do have their own Windows Phone apps though.
