There’s the latest version of HTC Sense onboard, with a slicker user interface serving up a feast of new features and tweaks, while HTC’s Smart Boot promises to make your handset power up swiftly.
Powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the handset beefs up its multimedia credentials with Dolby Mobile and SRS and enhanced photo features,while internal storage has been increased to 4GB, with a microSD card slot for expansion too.
We haven’t heard the lowdown on a UK price yet, but the phone is set for an October release.
