When you’re fighting for your life, it’s worth giving it your all and a little bit more. That’s apparently what HTC is doing, as it tries to pull out all the stops for the successor to its last flagship phone, the One X. We’ve seen reports that the phone may come with a 5-inch display, which should put it almost at mini-tablet territory. Now, fresh information of the phone has leaked, which reveals its possible name and specs.

Stuff.tv has heard straight from Taiwan that the One X’s replacement will be known as the HTC Endeavor C2. It sounds more like a codename to these ears, so hopefully we’ll get something less wordy for the final name.

The source hinted that the HTC Endeavor C2 will use a 1.7GHz quad-core processor. This might be the same NVIDIA Tegra 3+ processor that is rumored to power another rumored device, the HTC One X+. We can also expect to see an improved battery (removable one, please?), more color options, and tailor-made Beats headset.

We’ve talked of the improved hardware, but what of the software? Like the rumored HTC One X+, it is likely that the phone will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.  Apart from that, HTC will introduce a new Clear Voice technology for the Endeavor C2, which improves call quality. We’re not sure how popular HTC Watch is, but the video-on-demand service apparently will be upgraded as well.

The leak surprisingly reveals the expected launch and price of the HTC Endeavor C2. According to the source, the phone will be launched at the latest on October 1, so there’s a chance that we’ll see it even sooner. Price-wise, it shouldn’t cost much more than the HTC One X, at least on contract.

So, a 5-inch phone with Tegra 3+. We can roll with that. What do you think?

  • Bring us more.5 inch+ phones with HD displays, incredible cameras, lightning fast browsing, removable, massive batteries, memory card slots, and bring them to us NOW! Galaxy Note 2 is all I have been dreaming about, and it’s going to be in my hands in 21 days! But seriously, don’t you guys think HTC makes great quality hardware? Would you buy an HTC Phablet?

      No :) maybe in the future if there’s note III, but then there’s going to be sgs4 and….

      NO :)

      • When you surf the information highway as hard as we do at Android Authority, you need every inch you can get. Going to have to rock the dual Note II’s soon….. oh ya!

        • MasterMuffin

          :D well I have sgs3 which has 4,8″ screen so that’s enough for me…

      Yes, because I can’t understand why Samsung don’t fix their busted email client (doesn’t sync properly with Exchange). HTC phones are quality.

    • KC

      Yes, I would, if and only if, they release one with REMOVABLE powerful battery, expansion slot for microSD, a 2GB RAM for their bloated Sense UI and keep the std industry NFC, Wifi-Direct, or even Miracast.

    Errr… 5 inch? A mobile “phone”? really? If the standard is going any bigger I won’t be changing my current phone lol

    • MasterMuffin

      If you remember back in the good old days, mobile phones were huge so….. it’s a mobile phone

    • MasterMuffin

      And yes, 5 inch is really big, I wouldn’t want it but there are people who do, you can keep your phone or buy a new phone with not so big screen….

    …smh they are going to waste money investing in this… With their stats, i wouldnt recommend them making such a move.

  • Daveydog

    So is this the one that’s going to tmobile or the one that’s going to Verizon?

  • sammy richard

    I am not a fan of removable battery.. But HTC seriously needs to power-up the battery, especially if it is non-removable… For 5″, get no less than 2500+ mAh battery in it.. Else you will be seeing another major decline in HTC history….
    And for the Love of God, include micro SD slot…
    Other than that everything is cool….

      I myself, prefer the removable battery greatly. Batteries wear and lose their duration after a while of using them, so it’s good to know that you can replace then anytime you want to, instead of having to send it in to the manufacturer. that’s one of the reasons why I’m going for the G note2. It’s not the main reason bit it’s one of them.
