Information about the HTC Supersonic has been coming out in a steady stream recently, even though it has yet to be officially announced.
The latest leak offers some new pictures of this upcoming Android OS smartphone, which will reportedly offer a range of cutting-edge features, including a very large, high-resolution screen and 4G cellular-wireless networking.
One of these images is clearly a rendering, but HTC frequently uses renderings to show off its products. And it matches the picture of this model that came to light earlier this week (shown here).
The second image shows the rear of the Supersonic, with the name clearly emblazoned on it (shown here). This picture also helps confirm reports of two of this device’s features: a dual-LED flash and a kickstand.
A Preliminary Overview of the HTC Supersonic
A roadmap of 2010 products that leaked out of Sprint recently listed an HTC model with WiMAX, but gave no other specifications. Several more unconfirmed reports have revealed some additional details on it, though.
The HTC Supersonic will supposedly have much in common with the HTC HD2, but with Google’s Android OS instead of Microsoft’s Windows Mobile. Both models will supposedly have 4.3-inch touchscreens, slim tablet shapes, and 1 GHz Snapdragon processors.
On top of Android OS 2.1 (or possibly version 3.0), the Supersonic will run HTC Sense, this company’s alternate user interface that expands on Google’s standard one.
As mentioned earlier, this upcoming model will reportedly have a kickstand to hold it up while the user is watching movies on the comparatively large screen.
Despite all the leaks, many details on the Supersonic, such as the camera resolution or battery capacity, remain unknown.
Also unknown is when the release will be, but it’s not likely to be for quite a few months.
