There is good evidence that the image and specifications of the HD3 given below are a total fabrication.
It’s possible that the follow-up model to the HTC HD2 is in development, and might even be unveiled next week, but it won’t be the model described in this article.
The HTC HD3 will reportedly be officially announced next week, possibly setting a new standard for cutting-edge smartphones.
It will supposedly have a tablet shape 4.5-inch, AM-OLED touchscreen with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution — giving it a larger, higher resolution display than current models like the Motorola Droid X and HTC Evo 4G.
The current HD2 runs Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro operating system, but its successor is allegedly going to run the upcoming Windows Phone 7. Microsoft’s latest smartphone OS has been completely redesigned to be consumer focused.
It will use a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage, if unconfirmed reports are correct. This would give it a significantly faster chip than is in any current smartphone.
This HTC model is supposedly going to have an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash. It will be able to record high-definition video and well as play it over its HDMI port.
Also on the leaked feature list is 3G and 4G cellular-wireless networking, as well Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
Powering all this will reportedly be an 1800 mAh battery.
All the dimensions are not yet known, but given its screen size, the HD3 clearly won’t be a small phone, Still, it apparently won’t be an over thick one: 0.4 inches (10 mm).
HTC is going to take the wraps off the HD3 at an event in London on September 15, if an unconfirmed report is correct.
So far, the only carriers who has been linked to this smartphone are O2 in the U.K. and Telsra in Australia.
The HTC HD2 was a significant success for T-Mobile USA, and this carrier may be planning to pick up the successor. AT&T has also made a significant commitment to Microsoft’s new operating system, and could be planning to offer the HD3 as well.
