Labels: , , , , , , , ,

HTC has just held their event and they've officially announced the Rezound. This smartphone features Beats Audio, a 720p display, and Verizon 4G (LTE) support. The display is 4.3-inches (the 1,280 x 720 resolution gives it a higher ppi than the iPhone 4 / 4S) and you'll even find a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU along with Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" with a likely upgrade to Android 4.0. The rumoured release date for this one right now is November 10th for $299.99 on a 2-year contract.

Update: Slash Gear has just mentioned that this smartphone will get upgraded to "Ice Cream Sandwich" in early 2012. This means it gives the Galaxy Nexus a run for its money.
