Photographs of an upcoming Android smartphone from HTC, the HTC Amaze 4G, have been leaked alongside purported preliminary specifications. Thai-language Android news site Droid Sans obtained the images and specs, which line up with exclusive details reported by BGR last month. Highlights include a 4.3-inch qHD display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and HSPA+ 42 compatibility for use on T-Mobile’s network, among others. According to earlier reports, the Amaze 4G could launch next month in the U.S. Additional photos of the HTC Amaze 4G follow below. More →
A leaked internal T-Mobile document obtained by TmoNews suggests that the unannounced Samsung Hercules and the HTC Ruby, which we brought you exclusive details about earlier today, are set to launch on October 26th. The Hercules is expected to be T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy S II, which Samsung will officially announce on August 29th during a press conference in New York City. It will of course sport a dual-core processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), HSPA+ support, a Super AMOLED Plus display and other high-end specs. The Hercules will launch as the more powerful successor to the Sensation. It is equipped with a 4.3-inch display, a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and it will be the first smartphone to support the T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ network. More →
One of our sources was able to get some hands-on time with the HTC Ruby, a device that is said to be the “big brother to the HTC Sensation.” It’s going to feature a 4.3-inch display and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, and our source says that any talk of the device being an entry-level phone is out of bounds; this is a flagship smartphone, and one that is not part of the myTouch family. T-Mobile reportedly hasn’t settled on a name for the device, though we can exclusively report that is going to be the first smartphone to run on T-Mobile’s incredibly fast 42Mbps HSPA+ network. The current launch is set for early Q4, so we’re still a couple months out unfortunately.
