Rumor: HTC HD3, new HTC Desire (HD?), HTC Android tablet to be announced on September 15

HTC has scheduled an event for September 15 in London, where it might unveil no less than three new devices.

According to Smartphone House, the Taiwanese company will announce “a new HD3 Windows Phone 7” – which should, of course, come as the successor of the HTC HD2.

Last week, we’ve heard that the successor of the HD2 might not be called HTC HD3, but HTC HD7, so for the moment we can’t be sure of its official name.

Some rumored features of the HD3 / HD7 include: 4.5 inch AMOLED touchscreen with 1280 x 800 pixels, Wi-Fi, HDMI port, 8MP camera with dual LED flash and HD video recording, 1GB RAM, dual core ARM-based processor, and 1800 mAh battery.

SmartphoneHouse has it that the new HTC Windows Phone 7 handset will be launched in Australia via Telstra on a 3-month exclusivity deal.

The same source says that the London even could also be the place where HTC will announce its first Android tablet, as well as a new HTC Desire with Android 2.2 Froyo (this could be the Desire HD or the Desire Z).

How much of this is true? We’ll find out next Wednesday.

    considering Sharp are almost the only company on the planet that can make the highest resolution screen panels at 4.5″ with 1024×600, i think it’s extremely unlikely that HTC are coming out with a 4.5″ screen, not only with a higher resolution, but even an AMOLED one.

    Samsung are the current leaders in commercial manufacturing of AMOLED screens, and this year Samsung decided they couldn’t make enough screens for themselves AND HTC, as Samsung devices were growing in sales. so Samsung ended their contract with HTC, leaving HTC to find a substitute screen provider in Sony and their “super LCD” which is marketing for IPS panels.

    altogether, i’d bet money and body-parts that we’re not going to see a 4.5″ AMOLED 1280×800 from HTC this year.

    A resolution of 1280×800 falls outside of the WP7 max of 480×800
