Images of a a mysterious new HTC device have just popped up in a Chinese forum and you know what? It looks damn sexy. We really don’t have much to go on other than a few blurry images, so we’ll just speculate for now. We’ve heard rumors HTC could be working on an appox 5-inch Galaxy Note challenger and judging by what we can see in these images — this might be it.

You’ll see red colored aluminum accents along the side (hinting at a possible Verizon release), and the 3 capacitive key combo along the bottom. The back looks very similar to the HTC One X, so we wouldn’t expect a removable battery or SD card slot. In fact, this could simply be a CDMA version of the One X for all we know. After a GLbenchmark appeared not too long ago showing HTC’s plans for a device with a 1080p display, there’s been some speculation that this could be that device but I wouldn’t hold my breath. 1080p on a 5-inch device just doesn’t sound practical.
