HTC launches Desire HD

HTC launches Desire HD

The HTC Desire HD has been the subject of much hype since it was leaked on Amazon not long ago. The Taiwanese smartphone maker has officially unveiled the handset at a press conference in London today.

As expected, the kit improves upon its predecessor in every aspect with a dizzying array of features, not least of which includes a ginormous 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and last but certainly not the least, a superb eight-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, autofocus, face tracking, geo tagging, and of course, HD video recording in 720p resolution.

As if that wasn’t enough, HTC has thrown in all sorts of bells and whistles to sweeten its appeal, including DLNA media sharing, Dolby Mobile, SRS for video and e-reader functionality to just name a few. Plus, an all-improved HTC Sense UI is introduced which brings a more robust and user-friendly experience than ever before.

In terms of design and technical specifications, the Desire HD is almost identical to the popular Evo 4G released stateside earlier this year, sans the 4G capabilities. The jet-black aluminium enclosure gives the phone a rock solid feel and makes it arguably the best looking HTC phone since the Legend.

HTC has yet to reveal price plans or a firm release date for the handset but expect to hear more regarding that very soon.
