Back in August we received our first details regarding the HTC Runnymede that were later confirmed by a spec sheet that also showed the handset coming in white. Now we have our first official press shot of the upcoming 4.7″ Android smartphone packing those music notes from Beats Audio. More details after the break.
Looking a bit like the HTC Titan this Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread phone is packing a much anticipated punch. Dressed in white the HTC Runnymede rumored specs are a 1.5 Ghz single-core processor and a huge 4.7″ qHD 540 x 960 resolution display, 1GB RAM, an 8MP camera with dual LED flash. We are also hearing not only will it have an entirely aluminum design on back but also powered with some Beats Audio.
With the rumored single-core processor being the weakest link with everything else sounding amazing we are still hopeful for a dual-core processor. According to the spec sheet we can also expect the 8 MP camera to be one of if not the best smartphone camera with a wide angle lens and a f stop of f/2.2 that should really make for an excellent camera. I’ve been waiting for phone manufacturers to focus on lens specs rather than the megapixel number and it appears HTC is doing just that.
We still don’t have much for details but may get more information at the upcoming HTC Event on the 20th of September. Hopefully we get more juicy details on this Beats Audio infused device soon and maybe some actual hands-on photos so stay tuned.[via PocketNow]
