raiderIf yesterday’s official announcement of the HTC Rhyme failed to appeal to the male audience (not surprising considering the Rhyme was designed for the female audience in mind), not to worry as HTC has just announced another handset, this time in the form of the HTC Raider which by all accounts appears to be the competitor to the LG Optimus LTE (LU6200).

It will be sporting a 4.5” qHD display with a resolution of 540×960, and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM to top it off. It will also come with 16GB of internal storage along with an 8MP camera that sports a f/2.2 lens and is capable of shooting 1080p videos. It will also come with a 1.3MP front facing camera for those who enjoy making video calls.

It will be loaded up on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3 and appears to be capable of 4G LTE connectivity, although at the present moment it seems that the LTE radios have been tuned for South Korean networks, which is where the HTC Raider will be seeing its initial launch. Apart from its display and resolution, the rest of the device appears to be rather impressive and we’re thinking it will be making waves should it arrive onto the US market with 4G LTE support as icing on the cake.
