HTC T6 to be first phone with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie with 4G LTE and dual-SIM topping options.
The phablet market is buzzing with each of the competitors gearing up their devices for an astonishing battery of launches. Sony has already started with their Xperia ZU announcement aimed at Q3 2013, which could prompt Samsung to shift up their Galaxy Note 3 launch date. While people argue about the ZU's speed and dimensions in comparison to the Note 3 rumors, we suspect HTC is gearing up with a phablet to rival both phones: the HTC T6. It will be the first phone with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
While not even the name has been confirmed yet, rumors have given us a preliminary basket of goodies. The phone will have a 6-inch full HD screen (1080p) running on the Snapdragon 800 SoC (Krait 400 CPU clocked at 2+ GHz with an Adreno 330 GPU). Supported by 2 GB of RAM, the choice in SoC translates into the connectivity, including 802.11 b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, which will all be kept running by a 3,300 mAh battery. With a touch of HTC's Ultrapixel camera in the mix, the main flavor will be Key Lime Pie, as mentioned above.
The package of whispers is wrapped up with predictions of dual-SIM capabilities, and the bow on top is the 4G LTE radio. With a scheduled launch somewhere before the end of the year, the HTC T6 would be the victorious late comer, but while Google delays the launch of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, we might have to wait quite a while to see what this phablet can really do.
