HTC Pyramid Picture Leaks; Confirms qHD Resolution Display

All the handsets announced by HTC at the MWC 2011 were met with lukewarm response. None of the handsets really offered anything new or innovative and were just run-of-the-mill Android handsets.

Now, it looks like HTC is all set to change that with its next high-end flagship the HTC Pyramid. Rumors have been floating around on the Internet that the Pyramid will sport a qHD resolution display, and will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.


The folks over at GSMArena have received a front pic of the Pyramid comparing it to the HTC Desire HD. The picture confirms the rumor of the Pyramid featuring a high-resolution qHD (960×640) display. From the abovepicture, it looks like the size of the display will be 4.3-inches.

Other rumored specs of the handset include an Adreno 220 GPU, 768MB of RAM and a front-facing camera. The Pyramid might be the first dual-core handset to be announced from HTC.

Rumors also suggest that the Pyramid will be the first handset to be released with Android 2.4, with HTC’s beautiful Sense UI on top of it.

HTC Droid Incredible 2 Specs Leaked; Features Wireless Charing And Dual-Xenon Flash!

HTC announced the Incredible S at the MWC 2011. The phone is the European successor of the Verizon branded Droid Incredible.

Now, thanks to a tipster the folks over at Droid-Life have got their hands on the specs of the Verizon branded Incredible S the Incredible 2. Like the Incredible S, the 2 will be powered by a 1GHz MSM8255 Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, and pack 768MB of RAM.

The phone will also sport a 4-inch WVGA (800×480) display. The Incredible 2 will feature dual-microphones for noise cancellation, and will have support for global roaming as well.


Well, these are a pretty much run-of-mill specs with nothing special. In this age of dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, the Incredible 2 does not offer anything special.

However, some out-of-the-box features of the Incredible 2 include wireless charging, a dedicated TI Audio chip with SRS surround and an 8MP camera at the back with dual-Xenon Flash! Yes, dual-Xenon Flash!

HTC sure has made up for the lack of a dual-core processor with wireless charging and dual-Xenon Flash! It is unknown as to whether the handset sports a front-facing camera or not.

The Droid Incredible 2 will not support Verizon’s 4G LTE network. In all probability, the Incredible 2 will hopefully be announced by HTC and Verizon in the next couple of weeks.
