HTC Pyramid dual-core smartphone, or the European version of the HTC EVO 3D which was officially announced for Sprint last week. However, they're not the only devices HTC has been rumored to be preparing. The company is also expected to announce two further Android tablets, this time running 3.0 Honeycomb on larger displays than that of the HTC Flyer. Of course, it could also be a new Windows Phone device, though rumors around Microsoft's OS have been a lot quieter than on the Android front. Let us know your predictions in the comments, and we'll be bringing back all the news from April 12! [via SlashGear]

Eldar Murtazin has heard that Samsung is readying the Galaxy S i9001, an overclocked version of the original device. The Galaxy S i9001's single-core chip will apparently be running at 1.4GHz, rather than the 1GHz it originally offered. That, Murtazin suggests, will make the i9001 Samsung's rival to the HTC Pyramid, though we're expecting the HTC handset to be dual-core. Exact release dates are unknown, and of course none of this is official. Still, we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung milked the Galaxy S series' success a little longer, just as it has done with the recent 4G version. Update: Samsung Russia has confirmed the Galaxy S Plus i9001, with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, TouchWiz 3.0, 8GB of internal memory, HD video recording, a 1.4GHz processor and HD video recording/playback. It will arrive in Russia at the end of April, priced at 23,990 rubles ($844). [Thanks Kunal!]
Pyramid in its box ahead of the Android 2.4 Gingerbread smartphone's official debut at CTIA 2011 this week; first we saw the back, with the unibody-style chassis and 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and now it's the front that's been spotted. Up close to an HTC Desire HD in GSMArena's picture, the Pyramid appears to have a higher-resolution display, going by the narrower menu bar. That would fit in with rumors of a qHD display, like the Motorola ATRIX 4G, running at 960 x 540 rather than the more common WVGA 800 x 480. We've been asking for higher-resolution Android devices for ages now, so if so this could be a welcome change from HTC. Inside we're expecting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM and the usual bevy of connectivity, along with the latest version of Sense. [via SlashGear]
here. Whether the image of the Pyramid was a render, or a real image we will let you decide. Today we have something much more convincing that the HTC Pyramid is real, is on it's way, and looks beautiful. Check out this picture that was just leaked showing it next to its HTC Desire HD sibling.
fonearena overnight, and they show no less than HTC Desire, HTC Flyer, HTC Pyramid, LG Optimus 3D, and a Star Tab in various inventory lists. Although we trust fonearena to be tossing out trustable info, and they say this source has been good in the past, there's always the fact that these lists could quite easily have been replicated in any gridlike program for computing.
Android and Me's sources, the Pyramid will use Qualcomm's 1.2GHz Snapdragon MSM8260 processor and be paired with a 4.3-inch qHD display. As you'd hope, given T-Mobile's 4G push, the Pyramid supports HSPA+ for high-speed browsing on its 960 x 540 display. That's the same resolution as the iPhone 4 and the Motorola ATRIX 4G, and a nice step up from regular WVGA.
