AT&T HTC Liberty (Aria) shows up in device testing video

AT&T has surprisingly confirmed the existence of the HTC Liberty (which may also be called HTC Aria) in a recently-published video that “provides a sneak peek at the testing process at AT&T labs.”

Unfortunately, the video’s showing the Liberty only at the beginning and at the end, but we can still see that the smartphone is quite small – it’s probably as small as the now-old HTC Touch Diamond.

The rumored features of HTC Liberty / Aria include a 3 inch HVGA touchscreen dispaly, Android 2.1, Sense UI, Wi-Fi, and a 5MP camera – so this is not exactly a high-end device.

AT&T could announce the Liberty this month – and it could also announce the HTC Intruder (unless this is just another name for the Liberty). Until the announcement(s), enjoy the video:

    How is that not a high end device!? It says nothing of processor, and has an amazing 5 MP camera.

    Yeah, these guys at unwiredview have some strange things to say sometimes.

    I think that, for a 2010 touchscreen smartphone to be high-end, it needs to have a display with more than just 320 x 480 pixels (HVGA). Take a look at the HTC Desire, HTC EVO 4G, HTC Droid Incredible, Samsung Galaxy S, Nokia N8 and so on.

    Even Apple admitted that 320 x 480 pixels isn't good enough for 2010 standards and bumped the iPhone 4's resolution to 640 x 960 pixels.

    Yes, the Liberty has nice features. But it's pretty much like an HTC Legend. And if you compare the Legend with the Desire, you can clearly see that the Desire is high-end, and the Legend is… let's say it's almost high-end, but not quite.

    As for the Liberty's processor – I'm pretty sure it won't have more than 800MHz (maybe 600MHz), simply because its screen doesn't have a high resolution, and it doesn't need as much power as handsets with WVGA displays.
