HTC invites Beats-themed event in London
HTC UK has issued an opt-in event invite on Facebook to the launch of HTC with Beats Audio. It's happening at the Roundhouse in London on October 6 and will include performances from Fedde le Grand, Martin Solveig and an unknown headliner. It's expected HTC will use the opportunity to officially reveal the Sensation XL/Runnymede, the Vigor smartphones, or both.
Android-based Titan variant to launch October 7?
When HTC launches its new smartphone, code-named Runnymede, it will most likely not be called the Bass, as many had expected. Pocketnow now reports that the phone, which will be sold in packages offering Beats Audio accessories, will bear the name Sensation XL. The phone, which the company has still not officially announced, is most likely to have its formal debut at an upcoming HTC media event pegged for October 7.
HTC Runnymede shows in real life for first time
HTC's extra-large Runnymede, possibly called the Bass, has been spotted in real life for the first time through a video (below). True to form, it has a very large and probably 4.7-inch screen. Beats audio is in view, although it's notable the phone is using HTC's older Sense 3.0 and not the 3.5 seen in the Rhyme and possibly the Vigor.
Leak corroborates earlier reports
HTC's unannounced Runnymede handset has resurfaced, with a fresh leak showing the handset from several angles. The press rendering, which was posted by ePrice China, follows HTC's typical style for other smartphones, enabling viewers to take a look at the facade, backside, and a profile view that shows a relatively thin build.
Phones may launch as early as next week
New details of HTC's Bliss and Runnymede Android smartphones have been leaked. This is my next has posted full specifications for the Android-based smartphones as they will appear in European markets.
HTC Runnymede press image confirms close design
HTC's Runnymede was reinforced Monday with a discovery of a press shot. The phone is now near certain to be an Android conversion of the Windows Phone-based Titan and will share the 4.7-inch, 480x800 screen. Accordingly, what PocketNow saw would be an unusually mid-range device for the big screen, carrying a single-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon and either 16GB or 32GB of storage.
