We're live at HTC's little event in New York City, where the HTC Rezound for Verizon was just announced. And just as we expected, we've got a Beats Audio device on our hands, along with HTC Sense and a 4G LTE radio.
It's got a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM 8660 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a 16GB mircoSD card. It'll ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is no surprise. But HTC says it's committed to upgrading it to Ice Cream Sandwich ASAP.
It's also HTC's first smartphone with a 720p resolution display. That is, the 4.3-inch display has a width of 720 pixels, just like the Galaxy Nexus.
HTC's also incorporating its newer camera technology into the Rezound, just like we've seen on the HTC Amaze. It's got an 8-megapixel sensor, f2.2 lens and 1080p video recording -- including slow-motion. There's a 2-megapixel up front.
And, of course, there's that Beats audio. "You should have the best audio experience in your mobile experience," they said at the launch event. And included with the HTC Rezound, of course, are Beats earbuds.
The HTC Rezound will be available Nov. 14 at Verizon, Best Buy an online -- for $299.99.
We've got the full press release after the break.
