Specs and a computer render have popped up online detailing HTC's enormous follow-up to the already large Sensation smartphone.

Bearing AT&T branding, the mystery handset apparently sports a huge 4.5-inch qHD (540x960) display surrounded by the familiar HTC design ID. believes that the Holiday will use a dual 1.2GHz Qualcomm chipset with 1GB RAM plus dual 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras for capturing those special holiday memories in glorious 3D.

The US telco branding may suggest that this model is US-exclusive, but it will be interesting, nonetheless, to see how a phone with this huge display competes with the smaller handset sizes that we are more familiar with. Are you ready to for a phone this big?

I would upgrade from my Inspire is it had LTE and ATT support it... Also I wonder on the radiation level... The Inspire is high, specially compared to my last device, the Captivate. Looking forward to hearing more about this phone and seeing reviews.

No like, seriously if it doesn't go world wide, or a different version of it doesn't come here, someone from HTC's gonna die. :)

I've heard that while we may not get this specific model (this might be LTE only) we are set to see some very similar, maybe 3D packing, models from HTC

The idea of a "Mega Phone" is interesting... Don't think it will take off sadly =(
