HTC Amaze 4G promo pics arrive
HTC's upcoming Amaze 4G has been validated after press imagery surfaced on Sunday. The device seen by Cell Phone Signal has T-Mobile's branding. Also on view is that it might carry HTC's more conventional Sense UI with little sign of T-Mobile having customized the software itself, as on the myTouch 4G Slide.
The highlight of the upcoming range leader is expected to be its 42Mbps HSPA+ data, which earns it the 4G badge (really 3G) and will put it on par with the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II for Internet speeds. Like its modified Samsung cousin, it should also have a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, a rear-facing eight-megapixel camera, and a front camera (here two megapixels). The Amaze 4G will have a slightly smaller 4.3-inch, 540x960 LCD instead of the 4.5-inch, 480x800 Super AMOLED Plus on the Samsung phone.
A launch is expected before the end of the year and could be timed around the CTIA fall show in mid-October.
