As of right now, AT&T is on pretty equal ground with its rivals when it comes to HTC handsets. While AT&T has the HTC Inspire 4G, its competitors have the HTC Sensation (T-Mobile), the HTC ThunderBolt (Verizon), and the HTC EVO 3D (Sprint). Though, it would seem that equal ground isn’t quite satisfactory for AT&T, as the number 2 carrier has scooped up another high-end HTC device.
The dual-core HTC Lead superphone should be making its way over to the carrier soon. The HTC Lead looks almost identical to the Sensation (T-Mobile) and the EVO 3D (Sprint), and like its cousins, will sport a 4.3-inch qHD display, HTC Sense 3.0 UI, and run on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.
Leaked specs include Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS, 5-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Unfortunately, we see nothing here about a front-facing camera, so you video-chatters may want to rethink the Lead. No word yet on when the Lead will launch, but we expect to see the smartphone hit shelves around the same time that the Samsung Galaxy S II makes its appearance as the Attain for AT&T.
