HTC Desire HD specs leaked

Turns out the “Ace” in HTC Ace may just be a codename, and the finished product might be marketed as HTC Desire HD.

Looks like HTC wants to bank on the Desire’s brand awareness.

A spec sheet for the Desire HD has been leaked and, sure enough, it contains many upgrades compared to the vanilla Desire.

Let’s see what we should expect.

  • 4.3 ” WVGA (480 x 800) capacitive touchscreen (whether AMOLED or SCLCD is unknown at this time)
  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 8 Megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture
  • Android 2.2 with Flash 10 support
  • XviD playback support
  • SRS surround sound
  • 4GB internal memory
  • eBook reader feature
  • unibody aluminum design

Intrigued yet? Anxious?

This may be HTC’s answer to all the people who begged for a GSM version of the EVO. It even brings some nice enhancements compared to its CDMA predecessor.

There are still no leaked pictures, so that’s just a plain Desire above.

It’s rumored that the Desire HD will launch in October.

I wish manufacturers would stop releasing Android-based devices just before a new version of Android is due out. In this case, Android 3.0 will probably be available in late Q4, which means that even if you buy the Desire HD on day one, in one or two months the software on it will not be the latest anymore.

And then the nice cycle of waiting for HTC to port Sense UI to the new Android version shall begin.

Google and phone manufacturers should really be a little bit more in sync on this matter.

Anyway, the “unibody aluminum design” sounds excellent, and may just propel the Desire HD past the plasticky Samsung Galaxy S.

    It upsets me that I only got my desire a month ago…

    Same here, man. Only 2 months and it looks like it's obsolete already.

    Well, you'll have to learn to live with it :)

    The pace of change in mobile now is such that, If you buy Desire HD in
    November, it will look obsolete after all CES and MWC announcements in
    Jan/Feb next year…
