Specs for the HTC HD3? We Wish!
Let’s file this under “most likely fake, but somewhat feasible.” Over at Chinese site QQ.com, they’ve got what they purport to be a spec sheet for the successor to the HTC HD2, the HD3. According to the site, it’s slated for a November 2010 release (ok, this makes sense so far) and will pack a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (again, this is possible). Let’s dissect the other specs:
– Running on Windows Mobile 7 (totally believable)
– Features 1GB of RAM and ROM with 16GB of additional on-board storage (not out of the realm of possibility for a WM7 device)
– Screen is 4.5″ (unless they spread the screen to the very edges and remove the hardware buttons, a screen this large would mean a larger device, and the HD2, with a 4.3″ screen, is already quite large)
– Screen is 1280×800 pixels with 16 million colors and multitouch (again, if it’s running WM7, this wouldn’t be too far-fetched)
– Battery is 1800mAh (very large, but with such a fast CPU, it’ll need lots of power)
– Camera is 8.0MP with LED flash (current HD2 takes pictures at 5.0MP, so this is believable)
– Ports: HDMI, USB 2.0, and 3.5mm (adding an HDMI port for video output would add too much thickness to the device, but perhaps this could be achieved with an adapter)
– Includes WiMax and 4G (LTE?) radios (hmm…WiMax and LTE are competing next-generation wireless technologies. Why would HTC put BOTH in a phone?)
What do you think? Are we looking at the specs for the HTC HD3, or are you skeptical?
