Just when you figured out that the Samsung Infuse 4G with its 4.5″ display was more than what your eyes could take, or at least, is the epitome in displays on a Windows Phone 7-powered smartphone, along comes the HTC Eternity that reportedly packs an even larger display – we are looking at (pun not intended) at a 4.7″ Super LCD display at 480 x 800 resolution, with additional rumors swirling around, pointing towards a single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p video capture ability, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, up to 16GB of internal memory, 512MB RAM, 14.4Mbps HSPA support, 1650mAh battery and Windows Phone 7 Mango as the operating system of choice.
No idea on whether HTC Eternity is ever going to make it Stateside – hopefully, it won’t live up to its namesake and take an eternity to. While the Eternity’s display isn’t the largest out there as it is eclipsed by the Acer Iconia Smart’s 4.8″ display, that doesn’t mean the Eternity is anything to laugh at. What do you think is the sweet spot for a smartphone display?
