Android Gingerbread HTC Runnymede Details Revealed
The latest word from the HTC camp is that the company may have a new Android smartphone coming out to play at some point in the future, a smartphone that has the codename Runnymede. Apparently the HTC Runnymede was first spotted in EXIF data on a photo-sharing site, but now the details of said smartphone have been revealed.
According to an article over on Ubergizmo by way of Pocket Now, the HTC Runnymede will be one of the first smartphone to surface after the HTC and Beats Audio collaboration, and will be an Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread handset.
So here’s what details have been revealed thus far, the HTC Runnymede will sport a 4.7-inch touch screen, an 8 megapixel camera with dual flash, 720p video, a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for your video calls, have the same CPU as the HTC Flyer, a 1.5GHz single core MSM8255, 758MB RAM and 16GB storage.
The HTC Runnymede will measure 10mm thick, and come with the latest HTC user interface, HTC Sense 3.5, feature DNLA connectivity and also come with a pair of Beats headphones not earphones.
The word is the HTC Runnymede will feature a backlit sensor along with a wide-angle 28mm camera lens that can apparently shoot video at 60fps, which is double the average smartphone, and will also feature dual microphones, SRS Surround, and can apparently recognise when the Beats headphones are being used.
Now as for when the HTC Runnymede is expected to come out to play, well word has it the Android smartphone should ship in time for the holidays, but at this point in time it isn’t known which carriers will offer the handset or just how much the HTC Runnymede will hit your pocket for.
So there you have it, obviously there are no pictures of the HTC Runnymede available at this time, but as soon as any appear and any word on carrier and pricing surfaces we will of course let you know.
