The HTC Ruby, where it is also known as the HTC Ruby, has now been seen in the wild, where a reader of Droid Sans tipped off the site that the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturing giant is currently working on a spanking new Android-powered device which will play nice with DC-HSPA+ speeds (in Thailand as far as we know), which translates to 42Mbps speeds where data transfers are concerned – on paper, that is. Real world performance will obviously depend on a lot of factors, among them the load on the existing network, so don’t expect such mind numbing figures when you finally get one running in your hands.
The HTC Ruby (some call it the Amaze 4G for T-Mobile) will come with a 4.3″ qHD resolution display at 960 x 540 pixels, sporting an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor to keep things running fine and dandy, augmented by 1GB RAM alongside 16GB of internal memory. It is said that the HTC Amaze/Ruby will have Android 2.3 Gingerbread alongside HTC Sense 3.5 running on top of it, but we will see when the final product ends up in our hands.
What do you think? Are you amazed yet? Bad pun, I know, but I could not resist.
