The popular smartphone manufacturer, HTC, has been inviting a handful of press people and companies to a mysterious media event being held in New York City on September 20th.
It seems that HTC is planning on introducing a set of announced and unannounced Windows Phone and Android devices that could get release dates this year. Some of these upcoming phones include the HTC Vigor, and the recently leaked HTC Ruby (also known as the Amaze 4G). Another phone that might be joining the other phones is the HTC Holiday, which is a dual-core LTE Android smartphone.
The HTC Vigor is, in our opinion, the possible scene stealer knowing that there’s a possibility that the device will hit stores this month according to the semi-accurate roadmap provided by IGN. It is worth noting that the document predicted the September 8 launch of the Motorola Droid Bionic, but failed in the Samsung Stratosphere release date department. The HTC Vigor recently passed FCC so it is highly possible that the phone will get a release date not later than October, which is the “heat month” of the smartphone market, knowing that the iPhone 5 is rumored to hit the US market in mid-October.
A series of photos have just been posted on XDA Developers forums showing some of the features on HTC’s upcoming phone, the HTC Holiday.
As seen in the picture above, the HTC Holiday seems to be rather thin. The device is running off of a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and has a 4.5 inch display. Because of a leak earlier this year, we also know that the Holiday will also have 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear facing camera, and a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera.
The phone also appears to have a conductive charge port which means that you will be able to plug the charger in your wall and the device can be placed on the charger. (wireless charging).
The HTC Holiday looks like it will be impressive. Perhaps a big competition to the latest iPhone 5?
