Huawei

The success of the Galaxy Note series has left other manufacturers scrambling for an answer. From HTC’s J Butterly and Sony’s Odin, to Huawei’s Ascend Mate – everyone’s trying to get a piece of the phablet piece. Hold up, let’s scratch the last one and move Huawei’s offering from the list, as it’s been proven to be a fake. Or has it?

Oppo Find 5

HTC has finally confirmed all our previous speculation with the announcement of the J Butterfly in Japan. This brings us a true HD 5-inch smartphone, but it is far from the only one in the works. HTC’s new phablet may have received its big unveiling earlier today, but the Oppo Find 5 is just around the corner.

LG-Optimus-Vu-2

The Optimus Vu 2 was first mentioned in August, but at the time LG was completely mum on the second gen phablet’s spec sheet and availability details. However, someone seems to have spilled the beans big-time, because Android Greed has a trio of very legit-looking images showing off the Optimus Vu 2’s new design and listing most of its features.

HTC One X 5

At the beginning of the week Android Authority reported on what was supposedly a leaked image of an HTC phablet. The new image called the phone the HTC One X 5. Shortly after the leak, it became known that this was nothing more than a concept image by Flickr user Danny Tu. That’s the end of the HTC One X 5 rumor, right? Not exactly.
