We've seen blurry-cam shots of T-Mobile's HTC Amaze 4G before, but now it seems we may have the first set of leaked press shots for the phone, along with a more detailed list of device specs to boot. T-Mobile blog CellphoneSignal has published what look like official promotional images of the Amaze 4G, as well as details of what's lurking within the chassis.

As we heard last month, it looks like the HTC Amaze 4G is a 4.3-inch device with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel rear camera. CellphoneSignal says the device is targeted as a replacement for the myTouch 4G, which is interesting considering the lack of myTouch branding, and the fact that it seems to be running vanilla HTC Sense. We have to admit, though, the design is highly reminiscent of Tmo's myTouch line.

Other reported specs for the Amaze 4G include a qHD (960x540) display, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, HTC Sense 3.5 on top of Android 2.3, Bluetooth 3.0, and most interestingly, support for HSPA+ speeds of up to 42Mbps.

The Amaze 4G is reportedly due for release "in a few weeks", possibly adding some weight to the rumors of an Oct. 26 release date that emerged back in August, based on a leaked T-Mobile flyer.

T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G sighted, looks like the Sensation's big brother


Verizon's Vigor is a better phone than this. 720p screen, 3.5 sense, beats, Verizons LTE and better looking. Cant wait for it to release!

Am I missing something? Manufacturers keep putting out faster and better devices yet a division exists where carriers aren't nearly ready to support the data needs of these devices nor their users. I'm quite soured on all the data caps and network throttling going on. We pay damn good money (most of us paying in excess of $85 per month) only to be slapped in the face with caps and other technological-limitations on data usage.

Sprint just capped Hotspot data which means I'm going to drop that feature from my plan and only subscribe as needed on a case-by-case, or trip-by-trip basis. While I find the 3G/4G Hotspot feature nice and convenient, I've got better things to do than monitor my usage to avoid overage charges. Most of us expect "on-phone data" caps to be next just before the iPhone 5 arrive on Sprint's network. PATHETIC.

Man if only carrier and device manufacturers could resist from putting there logo on the front of a device and leave it only for the back. It would look oh so much better. That is what I like about the nexus and apple devices. Just my pet peave.

Sprint will not data cap anything. Either get the best device out or don't this is not the forum for complaints sprint still is the best out of any carrier period.

Nice opinion you have there, like the period part. Makes it really think you are right about Sprint... NOT! Hahaha!

"...seems to be running vanilla HTC Sense."

As a fan of stock Android (REAL Vanilla) devices that sentence made me throw up in my mouth. I hope manufacturers and carriers learn to stop digging their skins and widgets deep into the UI where they have have no business being in the first place.

Funny how the Sprint emplpyee claims their the best. Everyone knows that all the major carriers out perform sprints crappy 4g service. That's why they started making goofy a** ads about data caps to move your attention from the fact that their network sucks

Totally agree, specially since AZ has no Sprint 4G at all! Maybe some love it, but sure isn't the best. Lol

I don't get it. They were just talking about the delay in release of the Archos G9's and the possible problems with the next Google phone because of issues with the 1.5ghz chips. How will this be released in October when everyone else doing 1.5ghz is delayed?
