Mystery HTC device pops up with 1080p display and quad-core

HTC made its mark by bringing out the One X well before Samsung and LG drew their line of quad-core smartphones. Now it seems HTC has something better planned for it future line-up. What we are dealing with here is one smartphone and one unknown device.

The people over at GLBenchmark have published reports of a new device, the PM63100, codenamed 'Evltare UL'. This smartphone boasts a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz (may be Nvidia Tegra 3, if rumours are to be believed) and a 720p display of unknown size. This device seems to be headed for AT&T with either Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean on board when it hits the stores.

The other device which we are interested in boasts a 1080p display. This definitely seems to be headed towards the 'phablet' line-up of devices, a combination of a phone and a tablet like the Galaxy Note. What makes us think this is the performance report from GLBenchmark .

Clocked at 1.5GHz, the HTC6435 beat the PM63100 on the GLBenchmark Egypt Offscreen 720p test by about 60 percent. The PM63100 scored 8214 frames where as the HTC6435 scored an impressive 13685 frames. On the specs sheet it includes a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with Adreno 320 GPU. The full-HD display has a resolution of 1794 x 1080, probably with onscreen navigation buttons.

"Clocked at 1.5GHz, the HTC6435 beat the PM63100 on the GLBenchmark Egypt Offscreen 720p test by about 60 percent."

This is why I said many times now that the OUYA will be terribly outdated once it hits the market. Tegra 3 never had a chance as a high end chipset, any S4+Adreno 320 tablet you buy in the next few months will already be more powerful than the console you will be getting next year.

High end HTC phones never fail to disappoint. Loved all the ones I've used/seen from the Desire HD to the Sensation and now the One X.

1794 x 1080 is not "full-HD". I'm kind of offended that's there's not even any subtlety to this blatant lie.
The article implies that the usable resolution will be 1794x1080 due to the on-screen buttons. If they are included, the full resolution is probably the full HD.

Saw this on engadget this morning where they also noted that the OS was actually supplied by Verizon so assumed whatever this is looks like it'll be sold by Verizon wireless.

Verizon has their own OS now? Not sure exactly what you're saying...
