We talked about the possibility of the HTC Ace (aka HTC Desire HD) making its debut on September 15 and we’ve presented compelling evidence that suggested that. But this new piece of news about September 15 has taken us by surprise.
There’s not one but two HTC devices that will be revealed on September 15.
One is the much known HTC Ace the other is the lesser known HTC Vision (aka HTC Desire Z). Online store, mobile.co.uk has begun displaying the new HTCs possibly to get a head start from the the other online retailers but details of the Desire Z and HD are almost non-existent.
Buy anyways, here’s a recap of what we think the the Desire HD will be packing: 4.3in WVGA screen (most probably of the SLCD kind), Froyo (Android 2.2), 8MP camera with 720p video recording, 1GHZ Snapdragon processor and 4GB on board memory. We also think HTC will be including a dual-mic with noise cancellation in Ace’s arsenal based on the video that we’ve seen of the device. A secondary camera for video calling however is very unlikely for the HTC Ace.
As for the Desire Z its looking like a 3.7-inch screen (480×800) Android 2.1 (Eclair) powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and here’s our favourite part, the Z will also have a kick-out QWERTY keyboard, something like the one we’ve seen on the HTC TyTn II. An Android HTC with QWERTY keyboard, sounds very simillar to the upcoming T-Mobile G2 sans the HSPA+ ?.
And we think a device with a HTC Desire body and a full QWERTY keyboard is something we would classify as being just about perfect.
And no Windows Phone 7 fans, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing a Windows phone anytime soon.
