Several High-End Smartphones Expected to Debut at CTIA

by Reads (8,792)

One of the most important phone-related tradeshows of the year is going to be held this week in Las Vegas. This spring’s CTIA should see the debut of a number of new  cutting-edge smartphones.

The models that have drawn the most pre-show attention have all been created by HTC, so this company has the potential to dominate this tradeshow.

HTC Supersonic
An unconfirmed report says that Sprint is going to take the wraps off the HTC Supersonic at CTIA. If true, it means that this carrier is going to announce its first smartphone with WiMAX service much earlier than had been expected.

Leaked reports show that this smartphone would be impressive even without this 4G service, as it will have 4.3-inch Touchscreen and a slim tablet shape. It will supposedly run the consumer-friendly Android OS 2.1 on a high-end 1 GHz processor, and include the HTC Sense user interface which extends Google’s standard one.

HTC HD2 for T-Mobile USAThe Supersonic will reportedly be on store shelves a week or so after CTIA comes to an end.

HTC Incredible
Verizon could be planning to unveil the HTC Incredible this week, as an unconfirmed report says the launch of this Android OS-based smartphone is supposedly coming within the next few weeks.

This smartphone is expected to have a tablet shape with a 3.7-inch WVGA (800 by 480 pixel) AM-OLED touchscreen, Android OS 2.1, as well as HTC Sense and an 8 megapixel camera.

HTC HD2
It’s no rumor that T-Mobile USA is going to release one of the most anticipated smartphones of the season this week. This carrier has publicly announced its plans to launch the HTC HD2 on Wednesday.

This is possibly the most cutting-edge model available today with Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. It has 1 GHz processor and sports a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive display with multi-touch support.

Google Nexus OneGoogle Nexus One
Last week,  Sprint promised that it will introduce a version of the Google Nexus One in the near future, and CTIA would be the perfect venue for this.

Sprint’s announcement came on the heels of Google releasing a version of this high-end smartphone that fully supports AT&T’s cellular-wireless network.

Verizon has also promised to introduce a version of the Nexus One this spring, and CTIA is a likely place for this to happen.

Even though “HTC” isn’t in the name, the Nexus One was designed and is manufactured by HTC.  It has a tablet shape with a 3.7-inch, WVGA, AM-OLED display and a trackball, and it runs Android OS 2.1 on a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.

And the Rest
Despite all the leaks, unconfirmed reports, and outright rumors, every tradeshow brings surprises. This year’s CTIA is unlikely to be any different.

Not every company telegraphs its upcoming releases, so there will undoubtedly be some announcements in the next few days that weren’t expected.
