HTC 6435LVW shows up in benchmark results, purportedly headed to Verizon with 1080p displayAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Looks like the benchmark leaks of unannounced HTC device are continuing tonight. After we got wind of two new HTC products earlier today, including what may be a new tablet referred to as Vertex, another device has popped up on GLBenchmark. According to the listing on the site, this HTC hardware features the model number 6435LVW (it's also referred to as "dlx") and is headed for Verizon. As far as specs go, the 6435LVW is allegedly packing a display with a resolution of 1794x1080 and Android 4.0.4. Also said to be included is a 1.5GHz MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 chip, but considering that the benchmark also lists the 6435LVW as having an Adreno 320 GPU, it seems likely that we're actually looking at a "Pro" version of the Snapdragon S4.
Obviously there aren't many spec details for the HTC 6435LVW in these benchmark results, but what's there sounds impressive. It's also worth noting that Verizon recently said that all of the smartphones it releases in 2012 will feature 4G, so it's probably safe to assume that the 6435LVW includes LTE support. The only bad news here is that it's not clear when this thing will be launching. A previous rumor claimed that HTC is prepping a handset for release on Verizon this fall with a 5-inch 1080p display and Adreno 320 GPU, but that report also alleged that the device's processor would be quad-core, while the Pro version of the MSM8960 is dual-core. Regardless of whether the 6435LVW is that 5-inch phone or something else entirely, it's definitely something that all of you spec hounds on Verizon are going to want to keep an eye out for. Stay tuned.
