A rendered image of a concept design caught the attention of many tech pundits around the globe as the image was supposed to be that of a quad-core HTC smartphone clocked at 2.5 GHz and codenamed the HTC Zeta.
One of Engadget‘s fans sent the image to the tech blog, which eventually found out that the image was just a concept and not a device that HTC is actually currently working on. The image’s being just a concept burst a lot of readers’ bubbles, especially since the accompanying rumor about the HTC Zeta’s specs also enumerates mind-boggling features.
According to the HTC Zeta’s rumored specs, the device looks like its going to be the supercar of smartphones. Putting a 2.5-GHz quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 processor in the heart of this thing is just awesomely wicked. With 1 GB of RAM, this device will be a mean machine. The meanness of this smartphone tamed by its sexy form factor is totally a perfect combination.
Having physical dimensions of 109.8 mm x 60.9 mm x 9.8 mm, this device packs everything into the right places. This uniquely designed device is not typical HTC design. The unusual pillow-like curves at the back, which mostly likely will be a comfort to the hands, is something we don’t really see in existing HTC smartphones.
Those very thin bezels surrounding the 4.5 inch 720p HD display screen definitely add glamor to this thing. Beats Audio will also come with this device, so expect good multimedia experience from this one.
It will also come with an 8-MP camera capable of capturing 1080p videos and a 1.3-MP camera at the front for video chatting. And given the specs above, this smartphone should come with no less than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Now, if only those rumored specs were true, the HTC Zeta would make happy campers out of many Android fans and would definitely bring a lot of non-HTC fans into the HTC fold.
What do you think? Is it possible for HTC to deviate from its signature design? Is it possible for HTC to actually create an Android phone with exactly the same looks and specs as the rumored HTC Zeta?
