HTC Amaze 4G spotted

Images of the HTC Amaze 4G have appeared online, thanks to a source in Thailand. Little is known about the device that the source managed to uncover at a public event, but it seems to be an entirely new handset. The Amaze 4G, as it is known, also could be the HTC Ruby, branded for T-Mobile. The source of the images is a website based in Thailand, called Droid Sans. The HTC Amaze 4G specs match those of the Ruby, which further strengthens theories that the two devices are the same. The handset packs a huge amount of power into its package, and appears to be targeting Samsung’s Galaxy S II, which is the South Korean manufacturer's present flagship.

The screen is a 4.3” qHD display, featuring a resolution of 960x540. The Amaze 4G also has an 8MP rear camera with dual LED flash, and a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU. It also offers an impressive 1GB of internal RAM alongside its 16GB of onboard storage. The device shown in the images captured is running a stock version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), without HTC’s well-known Sense UI. When the handset releases to T-Mobile it may regain HTC’s famed UI, though not in its fullest sense. T-Mobile branded devices produced by HTC have historically received only some of the Sense UI, instead of the complete UI.

Owing to the Galaxy S II being its main competitor, it would come as no surprise to discover that the Amaze 4G will likely command a premium price-tag.

When will a company come out a Android phone with serious camera abilities (such as a good lens and Xenon flash)?

It would be something different...

And on top of that framework are the HTC Sense User Interface components. Like the widgets, the improved contacts system, social apps etc. Which is all that the average user sees, or cares about.

Does Sense UI has those buttons? The Settings button are present on the homepage in Android Icecream Sandwich 4.0, the Bluetooth and WiFi, etc. According to some leaked screenshots. It could be that.

Every android has a widget that puts those settings on a bar on the homescreen, or do you mean as individual icons because sense does have that and there are Widgets in the market that do the same.

as opposed to what? Theres Android phones, the next iPhone or windows mobile whatever its called that no one outside of this forum even knows exists let alone cares

I guess you only speak for yourself on this, the comment about Windows Phone (or whatever it is called)

who care about the stock interface.... Android is much much better in customize.... where we can make it much better looking than iOS or Windows 7 phone.... or we could just make it look like both.... or even mix and match of both.... it is endless imagination....

Or if you're that sad you can customise Android to look like WP7. My question would be why bother, just buy a Windows Phone if you want the Metro UI, sorry framework (had to correct that since UndergroundWire would tear me a new one for calling it a UI).

So true. Sometimes I'm convinced that the people on this forum are the only ones keeping it alive lately. Oh well, whatever helps these people sleep at night.

Just hurry and release it please. Willing to spend money on a decent new phone as my contract is due for renewal.

finally a different design.

Yeah, usually all of HTC phones look roughly the same, although this looks like a nexus S with a huge screen

Imagine iOS with that internal hardware

It would have a nicer look since we all know that Google doesn't give a flying **** about interface design.
