Today at GigaOm Mobilize 2011, T-Mobile has just officially announced the new and much rumored HTC Amaze 4G. Coming in October both the Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II will take advantage of T-Mobiles new HSPA+ 42 network technology. The Amaze 4G features a 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor and should be one awesome phone, more details can be found below.

Original leaks suggested a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 4.3" qHD diplsay, an 8 MP camera with dual LED flash (same great camera as the myTouch 4G Slide), as well as a front camera for video chat. Those have all been officially confirmed along with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and HTC Sense UI. We originally thought this would launch with Sense UI 3.5 but the press shot above clearly shows that is not the case.

The HTC Amaze 4G will support the new, faster HSPA+ 42 network on T-Mobile for enhanced data speeds, and will also come with full NFC capabilities. We should see Google Wallet for the Amaze 4G shortly.

Over on T-Mobile.com the HTC Amaze 4G will be available starting October 10th, and will hit retail stores on Wednesday, October 12th for $259.99 and will come with a $50 mail in rebate.

    Whats it going to take to get blogs to post full pricing info including off contract price?

      T-Mobile didn’t provide off contract pricing but like most recent smartphones if you are buying outright they’ll probably be around $499 or more.

        The $259 is AFTER a $50 MIR….not before….get the facts straight. The pricing of these things is starting to get out of hand again.

        Oh….and for the record…..be happy you get 7Mbps….most of the country gets nowhere near that.

    Does anyone know how fast the upload & download speed are in real time is it faster than Verizon LTE.

    • http://twitter.com/xguntherc Cory (xguntherc)

      It may not be faster than LTE from Verizon but my slower T-Mobile gets around 7000 kbps compared to 9-12 on Verizon. So T-Mobiles new HSPA+ 42 may get close.

      Check back around launch for our full review and I’ll check the speeds for you.

        9-12 mb/s is lower than what ive ever gotten on lte. always above 20, usually around 35

    The design looks absolutely awful. I don’t know why HTC likes that “rounded” myTouch look for T-Mobile HTC devices. Stick with the Sensation design :D

      I agree…..it looks cheesy.

    Did HTC call Apple to discuss the shape and design of the phone.  I am pretty sure Apple has the patent on the rectangle.  

    My wife likes the shape.  She prefers the rounded edges.  So I guess it is a matter of preference.
