Looks like HTC is going to launch the Runnymede as the HTC Bass, at least according to retailer Handtec that has a product page for the phone. We’ve seen the HTC Sensation XE being launched recently and, given the Beats orientation of the Runnymede, “Bass” would make more sense than Runnymede.
We’ve seen official press renders of the phone, which is white-colored like the HTC Radar, and we’ve mentioned the specs rumored. It will reportedly ship with a 1.5GHz single-core processor, 4.7-inch WVGA display, 768MB of RAM, 16GB of storage, eight-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel webcam, and it will run Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.5 on top of it (like the HTC Rhyme).
We’re guessing it will also ship with some Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear buds or phones, just like the Sensation XE, and we hope special audio decoding and playback software is included to offer the full Beats experience.
P.S.: Anyone else noted the relatively large lens on the back camera? Can we hope for an improved camera coming with the Bass?
