If you recognize the phone up top, ye ol’ hypothalamus is probably already hard at work churnin’ out the “Do Want” signals. If you don’t, here’s all you need to know: it’s called the HTC Amaze 4G (or the HTC “Ruby”, if we’re goin’ by its internal codename), it’s T-Mobile’s next flagship Android smartphone, and it’s a beast.
While this is by no means the first time Ruby has found its way behind a lens, it’s the first time we’ve seen it in any state of operation — in other words, it’s the first time we’ve really seen it turned on.
As you may note, this specific unit lacks T-Mobile branding — that’s because it was snapped by Thai Android site DroidSans at an event over in their home turf, where HTC is seemingly a bit less worried about keeping this device under wraps. With that said, this is very much the same device as what’s been floating the rumor mil around as T-Mobile’s Amaze 4G.
So, why is this one worth firing up the ol’ dopamine production center?
Check out the specs, as confirmed by the rather blurry shot #4 below:
- 1.5 Ghz Dual-Core CPU
- 4.3″ qHD (960×540) display
- 1GB Ram
- 8 megapixel rear camera
- 2 megapixel front camera
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
Now, the only question that remains: why the heck hasn’t T-Mobile made this thing official yet? Sure, they need to give their Galaxy S II some breathing room — but come on, guys, get this thing on the shelves.
