    Rumours so far are 5'' and 5.5''. So yep smaller than 6P.

    But who know it might be incorrect.

    Danske the new renders look awful.

    Why has HTC stuffed this up so much? :upset::upset::upset::upset:

    I actually liked the look of the htc one 10. All the had to do was remove the button at the bottom, make the bezel smaller and bang you are on a winner.

    Oh no you don't like it at all? I suppose we should wait for the real thing huh.

    I like these renders the most! I'm pretty excited for this phone haha.

    The bezels are tremendous.

    That's way too logical dude.

    I also like the HTC 10, to me the new nexus is essentially a frankenphone; made up of parts from:

    A9 front without the button (and giant chin for no reason lol) + HTC 10 chamfered edges with an added glass panel for whatever.

    As long as it takes pretty pictures, doesn't lag or get bogged down from me pressing two buttons too quickly, lasts minimum a day, then google can have my money.

    After the whole note 7 back order debacle and im well and truly over my iphone 6s, I think i might try and pickup a second hand 6p. I know i have had one before but maybe I need ot give it another go, specially since andriod 7 is out.

    lol you burn through phones like underwear.

    Also Note 7 looks amazing. I'm almost tempted by it, almost.

    I think the form factor works for a note, you have a stylus and you can draw stuff.

    I have had a note 2 and Note 4 - I think I may have used the stylus about 5 times in 4 years. maybe?

    5.5 could be that sweet device you're after, we'll have to wait and see.

    It'll probably have a better screen to body ratio as the bottom bezel will more than likely be reduced. Unlike the Sailfish/5'', where it's ratio is retarded due to recycled use of the A9's frame without the button. A chin without purpose? Imagine if they blow everyone away with like some awesome LCD screen light feature in that chin :lol:.
