HTC Ruby

One of our minor complaints regarding the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G was a wee bit of lag when compared to its cousin, the Sprint EVO 3D. We've pretty much chalked that up to the EVO 3D's increased RAM, and whatever difference in software tweaks you'll find between a Sprint and T-Mobile device. But that might all about to become moot, with yet another appearance of the HTC Ruby, which is believed to be destined for T-Mobile as the Amaze 4G.

First up, new specs on the Ruby, courtesy of DroidSans: It's looking to be very much like a souped-up Sensation, with a similar 4.3-inch display at qHD (960x540) resolution, 8MP camera with flash. But the powerplant's been beefed up, moving to a dual-core, 1.5GHz processor (up from a mere 1.2GHz), and a full 1GB of RAM. And it's going from 4GB of internal storage to a monster 16GB. Toss in Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.5, and HTC's best and brightest from mere months ago is already seeing a hefty upgrade. No complaints from us.

As for when we'll see it? A new leaked roadmap from TmoNews points to a possible October launch, and that jibes with a previous leak. That's plenty close, but if true, we can't help but wonder how it's going to leave current Sensation 4G owners feeling.
