T-Mobile’s Next Big Android Phone Gets Caught On Camera

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.
