HTC Desire Z and Desire HD specs leaked

We have previously heard that the device going by the codename HTC Vision will be sold as the HTC Desire Z and the HTC Ace will be known as the Desire HD, and now, thanks to mobiles.co.uk, a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, we’ve got some specs for these two smartphones.

And they are impressive. The Desire Z is either a Desire with an added side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, or a Touch Pro 2 sans the hinge running Android, depending on how you want to look at it.

Here’s a picture of it that has been floating around for weeks, if not months:

The Desire Z will have:

  • Android 2.1
  • a 3.7″ 480 x 800 Touchscreen
  • 1Ghz CPU
  • HSDPA
  • Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • microSD card slot
  • Accelerometer
  • Bluetooth 2.1

Moving along to the HTC Desire HD, we find out that this is indeed basically a GSM version of the HTC Evo 4G for Sprint.

Its specs are:

  • Android 2.2
  • 4.3″ capacitive touchscreen
  • 8 MP camera with 720p HD video capture
  • WiFi
  • HSDPA
  • GPS
  • Accelerometer
  • 4 GB internal memory expandable via microSD card slot

These are some pretty drool-worthy features even today, but why does the Desire HD come with Android 2.2 and the Desire Z just with 2.1?

Strangely enough, the leaked specs pages are still up on mobiles.co.uk. Judging from similar past events, one would expect them to have been taken down.

Or perhaps an official unveiling of these two smartphones is imminent.

The Desire Z fills a big gap in HTC’s Android portfolio, that of a device that aside from an enormous touchscreen also has a physical QWERTY keyboard. The Desire HD seems to be all about bringing the glorious 4.3-inch screen of the Evo 4G to global markets, alongside HD video capture.

All in all, two very desirable devices, if you get the pun. Now all that remains to be done is for HTC to announce them and people to start queueing up to buy them.

    The desire HD seems pretty good, although still waiting for the HTC HD3, an inter-OS platform phone, serving Android/WP7.

    The possibilities of adding 3D and even higher resolution SAMOLED HD screens, dual touchscreen technology with augmented reality/holographic depictions of figures/movies and also head-up display sattelite navigation like they have with cars, add this with head up display or holographic video calling enabling you to see the person in full figure form wdespite the screen limiting you to see only the face and shoulders. THAT is something to brag about, not Froyo 2.2 or minor OS upgrades. We'll probably see this tech in 2019, not too dissimilar to Microsoft's vision of the future montage videos!
