It looks as though the next HTC smartphone – rumoured to be called the Ace – may actually be a HD upgrade from the current Desire.
With plenty of rumours circulating around the web, the SuperEtrader.co.uk blog lists the specs that the Desire HD may come equipped with.
- 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen
- 8-megapixel camera
- 1 GHZ Qualcomm processor
- Android 2.2 OS (Froyo)
- HD 720p video capture
- Xvid video playback
- SRS surround sound
- Automatic face tracking
- Adobe Flash 10 support
- 4GB internal memory (up to 32GB)
- E-book reader app
- Unibody aluminium design
How does this stack up against the Desire? Well, the regular, vanilla Desire has a 3.7-inch screen, no HD video capability, runs on Android 2.1 and has a 5-megapixel camera. It has face detection but no tracking and doesn’t come with a HTC-on e-book reader although alternatives like the Amazon Kindle app work quite well.
And although the Desire is a smart-looking phone, the news of a unibody aluminium enclosure, like the Legend, is welcome.
While US phone fans have the HTC Evo (4G), those in the UK might have the Desire HD by October.
