Anyone afraid this phone will be overhyped on specs and end up being a disappointment? We know the J Butterfly exists, it is confirmed, and we assume this phone is the same specs for the most part. However we don't know for sure if it even has a 5" screen or 1080p, and the 2500mah battery seems to be pure speculation as well.

I'd love it if this phone turns out to be as we all dream

1080p 441ppi SLCD3 screen
S4 Pro 1.5GHz quad core CPU with Adreno 320 GPU
Micro sd card support
2500mAh battery

However, the J butterfly is already 9.1mm thick, HTC would easily have to make an 11mm or thicker phone to hit 2500 mah. Some speculate they could drop the microsd slot to help.

The only thing I am certain of is that IF the phone has a 1080p screen, it has to be SLCD3, some report SLCD2 and 1080p, but the SLCD3 tech by Sharp is where we get the ability to make a 441ppi screen. It could be a 4.7" phone or 4.5" though, it could only have One X specs inside, or have a 720p SLCD2 screen. We don't know any of this for sure or not. All we know is HTC is bringing a phone to Verizon, currently named the Droid DNA in Verizon's system, and this phone is going to be $199.99 which implies 16GB of storage built in, or less.

UPDATE: Forgot this phone came into confirmed existence with the GLbenchmark results that showed it having the S4 pro and a 1080p display. If it is 1080p then it is definitely SLCD3 at 5", and definitely S4 pro. 2GB of ram is plenty reasonable based on the J butterfly as well. I guess the only real uncertainty on this phone is the microsd card slot and the battery capacity.
