More information and a rather nifty render have surfaced on one of HTC's many rumoured 2010 smartphones - this time, the Android-powered Legend, which apparently is the next-gen successor to the five star Hero.
According to the ai.rs website, the Legend will eschew Android 2.0 as seen on the Motorola Milestone for the newer, even beefier Android 2.1 operating system. It's certainly feature packed with an AMOLED screen that beats the Hero's humble TFT screen, and bears a pleasing resemblence to another HTC rumour, the high-performance Bravo. The screen is Hero-sized, though, at 3.2 with a HVGA resolution.
Based on a 600Mhz CPU, the new phone supports high-speed HSPA internet, an optical trackpad, Wi-Fi, A-GPS for location finding, a 3.5mm headphone port for music fans, a five-megapixel camera with autofocus, 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM and utilities such as the new version of HTC Footprints and HTC People.
HTC is still keeping mum, but we think we can expect an official launch at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, next March.
