Samsung Galaxy S3 Awesome But Rival Bigger, Faster

By  | 

There were a lot of comparisons between the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 when they both hit the market this summer, but the S3 came out favorably on almost all points except for price, and thrashed the One X in from pre-orders alone.

Huge HTC One XXL to take on Samsung Galaxy S3 (rumor)

However, we have been hearing word on the grapevine about the next release from HTC. The device is rumored to be called the One XXL and boasts an impressive array of specs, such as a quad-core Qualcomm S4 processor with 2GB RAM, a screen rumored at a humungous 5.5 inches with 720p, an 8MP rear-facing camera and an 1.8MP front-facing camera.

If the predicted screen size turns out to be true, the device will be far bigger than the 4.8 inch screen on the S3, and bigger even than Samsung’s phablet, the Galaxy Note, which has a 5.3 inch screen. With a larger screen, a matching processor and double the RAM, the One XXL could prove to be a real threat to Samsung and even Apple.

The rumors do not even stop there – some reports state that the device could be the first on the market to include 802.11 ac wireless technology. If HTC acts fast, they could be just in time to catch the Samsung market before they commit to the Galaxy S3.
