The HTC T6 is thought to be HTC’s answer to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and judging by the leaked specifications, HTC’s T6 certainly looks like it could give the Galaxy Note 3 a run for its money.
Earlier this month, word of a new, upcoming HTC phablet leaked out, a device called the HTC T6. The name T6 is a codename for a device that is apparently coming later this year and from the looks of things, could be a serious competitor to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet which is slated to arrive later on this year.
Until today, many of the details regarding the HTC T6 were unknown, however thanks to @evleaks and The Unlockr, we now have a bead on what to expect from HTC’s Galaxy Note 3 challenger, a device that from the looks of things figures to be a larger version of the HTC One.
It appears that the HTC T6 will borrow heavily from the HTC One, including design hints, BoomSound speakers which means front-facing speakers for optimal sound, a dedicated audio processor, and more.
Other rumored specifications, that appear thanks to a spec sheet, include a 5.9-inch 1080p display, 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on board storage space, an Ultrapixel camera, 3,300 mAh battery and Android Key Lime Pie which is expected to debut later this year, possibly as Android 5.0.
What’s more is that the HTC T6 is apparently going to come with a stylus though it’s unclear if there will be any unique software like HTC Scribe on board when the device arrives. The Samsung Galaxy Note series is known for its stylus and their on board software that make it useful for things beyond just writing and drawing on the screen.
It also appears that the device will have a fingerprint reader for added security and a powerjacket for those that need more battery. All in all, it’s looking like a massive smartphone, in more ways than one, and a serious competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and its phablet throne.
A release date is unknown but considering Key Lime Pie is rumored to be on board, it likely won’t arrive any time soon. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, for its part, is expected to touch down in July at the earliest, September at the latest.
