The Sprint HTC EVO 4G in CDMA/WiMax flavor may be getting re-tooled for GSM networks and carriers as a device that has been rumored as the HTC Ace. The Ace will sport the same 4.3-inch touchscreen as the EVO 4G and will also be an Android handset. Because the device is speculated to carry Android 3.0, otherwise known as Gingerbread, it’s unclear whether HTC will also bundle HTC Sense UI on the Ace. The Ace, being a more modern hardware build than the EVO 4G, will be pushing the envelop with HD recording, which is slated for 1080p instead of the EVO 4G’s 720p HD video captures.
Here are the complete rumored specs for the Ace, according to Android Spin:
4.3 in. display (This display will be a HTC’s own rival to the Super AMOLED display)
1.5 GHz processor
8 MP camera and 1.3 MP front facing camera
Much better battery
1080p HD recording
Also, speaking of the HTC EVO 4G, the device will be getting a successor as well, code named as the HTC Sabor.
It looks like with the high buzz surrounding large-screened devices such as the EVO 4G, the Droid X, and the Galaxy S, manufacturers are inching away from the 3.5-inch or so form factor to the 4-inch and more category with smartphones, offering a nice compromise between a smartphone and a tablet for a good mixture of talk and surf.
