Samsung is dominating in the phablet market with the highly-popular Galaxy Note 2 (click here for more information), but HTC is planning to challenge the phablet with a device rumoured to be codenamed the T6. According to the report, the T6 is larger version of the Taiwanese firm’s current flagship the HTC One (click here for more information).

The rumour comes from TheUnlockr (click here for the original article). According to the site, “HTC is indeed working on a so-called phablet-class smartphone with pen-based input, we’ve learned, an attempt to challenge the market dominance of Samsung in larger-screen Android handsets. T6, as it is codenamed, has been tipped as a 5.9-inch, full HD beast of a device, powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm MSM8974 — a quad-core chipset clocked at 2.3GHz and better known as the Snapdragon 800.”

Speaking more about the T6, the site said, “If the upcoming HTC M4 is a quote-unquote One mini, then T6 can certainly be thought of as a One max; just like M4, T6 borrows heavily from the current “king of smartphones,” apparently aping its linemate’s good looks, BoomSound speakers with dedicated audio processor, and an optically-stabilized UltraPixel camera around back. RAM should be a healthy 2GB, but storage may be as low as 16GB, with planned microSD expandability providing some solace. The front-facing camera looks to offer an impressive 2.1-megapixel, wide-angle configuration.”
