Assuming this rumor is accurate, I don't see shrinking down to a 5.2" display as an upgrade either. An upgrade in my opinion would be to keep the current physical size but increase the other specs to match that of the upcoming G3.
Im assuming since they called it a phablet it will be phablet size. Im guessing that was a typo. But ill definitely be getting one if they out do themselves. If it is just a big m8 idk if I will be grabbing one. Im thinking they better top the competition with this one. That means upgraded camera possibly 4.4.3 minimum!
