It looks like the phone formerly known as HTC Ruby, and now recognized as HTC Amaze 4G will launch on T-mobile any day now. And we've got some leaked pictures to prove it.
The phone doesn't have T-mobile branding because the pictures are taken in Taiwan and they are of a local model, but it's the same device HTC and T-mobile will sell in USA as the HTC Amaze 4G.
- 1.5 Ghz Dual-Core Snapdragon CPU
- 4.3â€³ qHD (960—540) display
- 1GB RAM
- 8 megapixel rear camera
- 2 megapixel front camera
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
The chip should be very competitive with T-mobile's Galaxy S II with a dual core Exynos chip. The phone seems a little tall, even for a 4.3" phone. That's in part because it uses a 16:9 resolution like the qHD one, but the bottom part could probably be made a little shorter, too. I hope manufacturers realize that the more compact they can make their phone, the bigger the screen they could use in a same-size phone, and that's always a plus for customers, as long as the phone itself doesn't get any bigger. I know it's possible to make more compact phones, because I've seen the 3.7" Motorola DEFY, which is even shorter than many 3.2" phones.
With the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which will have a 16:10 1280x800, I hope they'll set the trend for more "HD phones" which will have that resolution rather than the 16:9 1280x720 one, which I think makes the phones too narrow, and crams the content too much in the vertical mode. Plus, it makes typing a little harder. Either way, it looks like a pretty nice and slim phone, with an aluminum back, which is now HTC's trademark.
