[Rumor] HTC Reportedly Working On A Massive 5" 1080p Phone To Be Launched In September-October

According to a new report from DigiTimes (hang on!) this morning, HTC is preparing a new monster flagship phone for launch this fall. The Taiwanese publication says the device will come with a 5" display and a resolution of 1794x1080. If that number sounds a little off to you, it's because those dimensions probably exclude 126 lines to make room for the navigation buttons.

GLBenchmark 2.5 Released, Brings Support For 1080p And A New Version Of The Egypt Benchmark

Device Info For "HTC Shooter" Pops Up On GLBenchmark - It's Possibly The EVO 3D

Site GLBenchmark showed a very interesting log of a phone, dubbed the HTC Shooter, checking in recently. As this is the device's development codename, the speculation is that this could be Sprint's sequel to the EVO - the EVO 3D - that we will likely hear about at CTIA next week.

As you can see in the screenshot taken below, the Shooter sports 960 x 540 (qHD) resolution (the same as the Atrix) and is running Android 2.3.2 'Gingerbread.' The model is listed as PG86100 and it is clearly setup for Sprint's network.

The phone also sports a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor (probably - this is based on the known Qualcomm chipsets with the Adreno 220 GPU that the benchmark indicates) and looks to be nearly identical to the HTC Pyramid, renders of which turned up just yesterday.
