What the heck? It seems that the HTC Runnymede has yet to be made official, and here we have the HTC Runnymede 2 spotted online, where it will sport 16GB and 32GB flavors to keep you happy. To make sure that the HTC Runnymede remains at the top of the food chain, it will run on the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system complete with HTC’s latest Sense 3.5 user interface layer on top of stock Android. There will be a generous 4.7″ display at a rather disappointing 800 x 480 resolution though, with a single-core 1.5GHz MSM8255 processor that is similar to the one in the HTC Flyer running proceedings from within.
Still shy of 1GB RAM and 768MB, there will be an 8-megapixel camera that does 720p video with dual flash capability, while a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera is there for video calls. DLNA support is also included, while you will get a pair of bundled Beats headphones. Interestingly enough, the camera will feature a backlit sensor plus 28mm wide-angle lens and focal ratio of f/2.2, while in video mode, it does footage at 60 frames-per-second.
Turns out the 16GB model will cost you 499 GBP outright, while the 32GB model will be slightly more expensive at 530GBP – surely the small price difference is worth having double the amount of storage space, no? If you ask me, this seems to be similar to the Runnymede in all aspects, perhaps there’s a typo somewhere or something got lost in translation?
