HTC’s mystery device the HTC One X 5? Nope.

I think the only reason we’ve stuck with this story is it was interesting to begin with, and now it just keeps on coming. We could go over all the “mysterious HTC device” posts we’ve done, but you can see a bit of a chronology here if you’re interested. The latest was yesterday, with an inside source seemingly confirming that the device was real, and it is coming.

Well, today’s update is just could have been a little more official. As you can see in the article image, what appears to be an official press shot of a device called the HTC One X 5 has been unearthed. It certainly looks pretty official, but that’s easy to achieve with Photoshop these days.

Update: And that’s precisely what has occurred here. The image is a fake, a design concept posted to Flickr by Danny Tu. Sorry folks, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for this one.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
