HTC’s First Dual-Core Device Rumoured
Since the announcements of mind-blowingly powerful Android phones such as the LG Optimus 2X and the Motorola Atrix 4G, HTC’s roster of upcoming devices seems a little… uninteresting.
However, recent rumours around the interweb suggest that HTC are ready to play catch-up with their fellow manufacturers: rife are whispers about a new device, codenamed Pyramid, whose specs are definitely up there with the best of what any current smartphone producer has to offer.
The specifications include:
- The 1.2 GHz Snapdragon MSM8260 dual-core CPU that Qualcomm recently showed off at the Consumer Electronics Show
- 1080p video playback and capture
- A 4.3-inch qHD-resolution screen (960 by 540 pixels) – the same as the aforementioned Atrix
Word on the web is that the device will be coming to T-Mobile, and that these details were leaked prior to its official announcement as the Mobile World Congress later this month. It’s important to remember that these specifications could be purely fictional at the moment, but you can expect the HTC Pyramid to get its own home here on XDA if it emerges from behind the curtain in a couple of weeks.

One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
