BGR has obtained photographs of the still-unannounced HTC Holiday Android phone, which may be AT&T’s first 4G LTE-enabled smartphone. We were also shown the results of LTE speed tests taken on the HTC Holiday in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas, and from what we saw, they topped out at an incomprehensible 29Mbps — far faster than the fastest speeds we have seen on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Of course AT&T’s 4G LTE network is basically empty right now since it hasn’t yet officially launched, but we definitely like what we’re seeing so far. As far as the HTC Holiday hardware goes, previously reported spec highlights include Android 2.3.4, a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera and the HTC Sense 3.0 UI. The HTC Holiday is slated to launch in the next few months on AT&T. Check out our photo gallery below, which includes images of the device and a shot of a pretty remarkable speed test.
The crew over at XDA-Developers recently spotted the HTC Holiday (with a cracked screen) for sale on Craigslist. We first saw renders of the Holiday in May and the leaked images supposedly confirm a number of the phone’s specs. Bound for AT&T, the Holiday appears to be equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch 960 x 540-pixel display, 1GB of RAM, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread). It is unclear when AT&T plans to launch the Holiday but its spec sheet certainly has enough muscle to compete with Samsung’s inbound U.S. Galaxy S II handset, which will be announced during a press event on August 29th. Unfortunately, the XDA-Developers thread outing the device has already been pulled but you can hit the read link for another picture of the Holiday. More →
