In this video we take a closer look at the hardware of the HTC Titan, which touts impressive specs for a Windows Phone: it has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon single-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, UMTS 850/900/2100 (allowing it to get on AT&T 3G in the US) and GSM 850/900/1800/1900. For imaging, it has a 1.3MP camera up front and an 8MP camera on the rear which takes 720p HD video. The display is a 4.7″ WVGA Super LCD panel, which provides a relatively low pixel per inch (ppi) measurement of 198. It weighs 160grams and is just a hair a centimeter thick at 9.9mm.
Overall the device indeed feels large, but marginally compared to 4.3″-screened devices like the Desire HD and Galaxy S II. The Titan is made out of glass on the front, plus metal and plastic for the rest of the casing. It’s rare to find a smartphone with metal construction, and we were excited to see it on the Titan.
