HTC has taken Note of the success of Samsung’s 5.3 inch Galaxy.

The move is reminiscent of Samsung’s Galaxy Note, except the smartphone being release by HTC will be the company’s new flagship device. According to DigiTimes, the 5 inch device will have a screen resolution of 1794 by 1080 pixels, which is just shy of Full HD and the highest of any smartphone thus far.

Samsung pioneered the phablet market (smartphone-tablet) with the launch of their Galaxy Note, but as it approaches its first birthday, it is believe Samsung will be releasing a 5.5 inch successor at the end of August.

The success of the Galaxy Note was a surprise to the smartphone industry who, like I, believed its 5.3 inch size would cater to a niche audience. However, by March of 2012, Samsung reported more than 5 million Galaxy Notes had been sold. 

Part of the Galaxy Note’s charm is its stylus as it brings free-hand expression to the digital mobile world.

The demand for Samsung’s Note has inspired rivalling vendors to take a piece of the phablet pie by releasing their own versions. LG has launched its 5″ Optimus Vu in international markets, along with phablet renditions from lesser-known players Pantech and Coolpad.

As of late, HTC closed offices in Brazil and South Korea. They also sold half of their stake back to Beats Electronics.
