HTC is all set to unveil its Desire HD smartphone in India next week, according to sources familiar with the development. HTC’s Desire HD comes with a whole host of features and runs on Android 2.2 Froyo.
The phone has a 4.3 inch WVGA resolution, or 800 x 480 pixel display, which is quite good for a smartphone.
With the bigger screen comes the ability to watch videos in much better resolution and size. For overall high quality entertainment, HTC Desire HD also has Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound.
Desire is powered by a powerful 1 GHz processor. It has an 8 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash, face detection technology, the ability to record 720p high definition video, and a geo tagging feature that records where the picture was taken.
The phone also has a fast GPS processor which is said to render maps instantly. On the connectivity front the phone uses 3G, Wifi and Blutooth networks as well as USB drives. It has a 3.5 mm stereo audio jack, and is DLNA compliant, which means media from the phone can be streamed to an HDTV using a cable.
HTC has also upgraded its Sense user interface which now includes the ability to control a phone remotely; so if your phone is unlocked you can lock it from a website where you can also find out where the phone is.
Desire HD is expected to cost Rs 27,500 and HTC plans to release a range of devices in India over the following months, which we’ll surely write in detail about.
