HTC’s rumored five inch phablet Android smartphone is pretty hard to understand.  On one hand, we thought it may be a new Verizon handset and HTC’s answer to the Galaxy Note II and the LG Intuition.  However, it has been a couple of weeks now and HTC has yet to announce anything about the 5 inch device rumored to be known as the HTC Droid Incredible X or the HTC One X 5.

According to another rumor from a “reliable source,” the 5 inch HTC device is going to be a Nexus device known as the Nexus 5.  The 5 clearly refers to its 5 inch display with 1080p resolution and helps strengthen the Nexus 7 brand as well.

Other specs include a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 12MP rear facing camera, 2MP front facing camera, LTE, 2500 mAh battery, 5 inch 1080p screen, and it runs Android 4.1.2.  The latest version of Android Jelly Bean offers improved Project Butter, additional lock screen capabilities, and other general bug fixes.  While it is not a huge OS update, it is something to usher in with a great piece of hardware.

It’s almost that time of the year again where Google collaborates with one (or multiple?) partners to produce the next Nexus device.  Will the 5 inch HTC phablet become the latest Nexus?  Only time will tell.
