HTC has been fairly mum to start the new year while quietly working in the background working on devices and not drawing any sort of attention. However, we are now seeing some of its work finally come to fruition in the form of an attactive new Ice Cream Sandwich-based smartphone which has emerged from the wild. This mysterious phone comes fully-loaded too featuring the following:
- 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- Sense UI 4.0
- 8MP Camera with VGA FF camera
- AMOLED screen
- 4G LTE connectivity
While the identity of the device is a mystery, we may have a hunch of what it will be. First off the specs seems to match up with a few existing HTC phones out there– namely the Rezound smartphone even though the processor is not clocked as fast. Also, The 4G LTE radio stands out in the featured specs as well. While we’re not certain by any means, this device seems to match up with a certain 4G LTE global phone Verizon does have planned for release at some point this year, especially since the phone has a giant 4G LTE logo as well which almost always is a dead giveaway for Verizon Wireless devices. So this could possibly be the HTC Fireball we’re looking at ladies and gentlemen.
There’s one unusual thing to point out about the phone. While ICS devices will generally use on-screen buttons, we see this mysterious device featuring not only the familiar hardware buttons, but four hardware buttons to be exact instead three. Of course this device is a prototype and will likely be modified and have a few changes once its formally released to the masses later in the year. You’d still think however, that the four buttons are still a bit of a head-scratcher even if it is a prototype.
There are no other additional details of this smartphone, but stay tuned with TA for further details or news.
