DROID LX Has “Samsung Galaxy S3 Killer” Written All Over It

By  | 

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been out since May but has yet to be toppled by any Android smartphone. In fact, the recent launch of even the iPhone 5 has not affected Galaxy S3 sales.

Now it looks like there may finally be an Android smartphone making its way to the US which does have superior specs over the S3 instead of just trying to match them. However do keep in mind that these are just speculations at this point.

HTC DLX may be able to take on Samsung Galaxy S3

The rumours around HTC’s giant DLX vary from the possible to the improbable. This newest snippet falls into the former set. Football4PDA, who has a decent strike record in leaks, has posted the core specs (as it were) of HTC’s first phablet foray.

The DLX looks like it’ll have a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro and a 5” 1,080p screen. Do take note that this is a newer processor than the 1.5GHz Snapdragon in the US Samsung Galaxy S3 at the moment, and the S3 has a 720p display. It may have 1.5GB of RAM, a 12MP camera and a 2MP front camera, as well as a 2,500mAh battery (non-removable). So while it is a half-gig short on RAM compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the HTC Android has both a bigger battery and megapixel camera.

It will reportedly come with Jelly Bean out of the box which is no surprise given that the HTC One X+ is doing the same. We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
