Is HTC producing the next Nexus smartphone? For over a month now, there have been more and more rumors of a 5-inch HTC smartphone that will compete directly against the popular Galaxy Note (and its upcoming sequel).
According to a new report, the so-called HTC Droid Incredible X will actually be the Google Nexus 5, Google's next flagship smartphone.

The phone will be released with Android 4.1.2 (the upcoming Jelly Bean update) which should bring fixes, even zippier performance and other minor tweaks.

Supposedly, the device will have a 5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Making that even more impressive is that the display is said to have a 480ppi display, a number that blows away even Apple's Retina Display.

Additionally, the smartphone will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4, 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The phone will even have a second LED notification light on the back of the device, a 12MP rear camera and a 2MP front-side camera.

I would like to see another HTC nexus phone as well but not a 5" screen.. unless the they can do it without making the overall size of the phone much larger.

Are people really buying these massive phones? I have the One S at 4.3", it's nice and slim but any millimetre bigger; and it would be too big, not to mention I get just about 1-2 days of battery life per full charge, and that's with moderate use.

Yea, unfortunately Verizon shafted me by having me pay full price for their phones all because of their greed. Fortunately, there's a thing called pre-paid that is lower in price, and will only be a matter of time before 4G in those carriers is widespread. Kiss my ass Verizon! There's no way in hell I'll pay full price for your phones!!!

They could potentially fit a 5" screen on a body that is the same size as the the galaxy nexus
