HTC’s First Dual-Core Device Rumoured

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.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
