As expected, HTC today finally announced their first US Beats phone– the HTC Rezound. If you’re looking for a superphone that’s also an amazing media phone this is the phone for you.
Specs wise it’s everything we heard it would be: 1.5 GHZ dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM (even faster than the already quick Droid RAZR and Galaxy Nexus), support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, 8 megapixel back camera with a second 2 megapixel front camera for HD video chat, 4.3 inch 720p HD screen (or the same, awesome HDTV-like screen as the Galaxy Nexus) and of course, built-in Beats Audio (so everything sounds just amazing as it looks) with 32 GB of storage (16 built-in and 16 on an included microSD card).
HTC today did though add in two major details we didn’t know: it will be getting the latest version of Android, the upcoming Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, early next year (which is huge considering the amount of Android phones that get announced and never get updated to the latest and greatest. We’re really glad Verizon and HTC are promising not to let that happen here), and that it will also come with Beats earbuds in the box!
All in all, between this, the Droid RAZR and the Galaxy Nexus we gotta say– now is a pretty awesome time to have an upgrade on Verizon. The Rezound will be available for $299.99 with new 2 year contract and data plan when it launches on November 14th.
