The battery is speculated to be a non-removable 2500 mAh and DLX will operate on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with Sense 4 which was introduced in HTC One X+.
HTC DLX might be heading towards Verizon and is expected to be released around Thanksgiving. With HTC J Butterfly being exclusive to Japanese markets, rumours about DLX might bring some hope for the people who were amazed by the high-resolution screen and its size.
