HTC's 5-inch Android superphone looks to be going global, following the posting of a device image on Twitter. 

It's been dubbed the HTC Deluxe, and the leak comes courtesy of @evleaks, the Twitter account that has leaked several devices in recent months, so seems to be credible.

It's no surprise either: with Japan seeing the official launch of the J Butterfly and the Verizon network in the US getting Droid DNA, it was only a matter of time before HTC introduced the rest of the world to a 5-inch handset. 

There are no specs or details at the moment, but it's reasonable to assume that the HTC Deluxe will keep the 1080p display, giving you a cracking pixel density of 440ppi, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

The J Butterfly and the Droid DNA both see a quad-core processor and 2GB RAM, so we'd expect the same in the HTC Deluxe, although we wouldn't be surprised if the 4G LTE was missing. The J Butterfly also offers IPX5 waterproofing and microSD expansion, so could be a hot little number if it keeps these features.

An 8-megapixel camera sits on the rear of the existing variants of this handset, along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We'd expect it to launch with all the HTC Sense 4+ bells and whistles that were in the HTC One X+.

Of course, there's nothing official on this yet and we can't be 100 per cent certain that it will launch under the Deluxe name.

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
