At this point, Verizon’s upcoming 4G-friendly Android phone, the HTC Thunderbolt, is about as secret as my undying love for oxygen. While its gone by different names over time (from the Incredible HD, to “Mecha”, to the current Thunderbolt moniker), we’ve seen leak, after leak, after leak with this thing.
One thing, however, has managed to remain elusive: the spec sheet. In some sort of belated Christmas miracle, it looks like that might have just made its way out.
According to German HTC fansite HTCInside.de, these specs come straight from the inventory system of an unnamed German retailer:
- 1.2Ghz Qualcomm MSM8960 dual-core CPU
- Android 2.3
- LTE support
- 4.3″ Touchscreen
- 8 megapixel autofocus camera with Dual-LED flash (with HD video recording)
- 5 megapixel front-facing camera
- Radio: Quadband UMTS/LTE/HSDPA/HSUPA
- Hotspot mode
- 16 GB internal memory
- 1800mAh battery
If all that holds true, this is shaping up to be one helluva phone — and fortunately, my trusty ol’ BS meter isn’t registering any hits with this. The MSM8960 chipset is indeed dual-core and clocked at 1.2Ghz — so if these aren’t real, the faker at least did their homework. The 5 megapixel front facing camera is a bit surprising, given that nearly all of the front-facers out there are either 0.3 Megapixels (VGA) or 1.3 megapixels, but perhaps Verizon is looking to boast about “High-def video calling” with this one.
