HTC Desire HD (Ace) gets caught on video


One of the most anticipated HTC Android devices has got to be the Desire HD, otherwise known by its HTC Ace codename. We’ve seen a couple of pictures floating around the intertoobs, but never have we had a chance to see some real footage of the handset, until today.

The Desire HD has everything you’d expect from a beautifully made HTC Android handset. With that said, the device looks painfully similar to the EVO 4G, not an exact copy, but close enough to ring similar in our minds. The rumored spec sheet on this Android smartphone is absolutely mouth-watering, and while we don’t exactly know for sure what carrier it will off the Desire HD, we do have a couple of guesses. The video below shows what looks like to be a pretty-finalized Desire HD, though the HTC handset isn’t powered up.

The HTC Desire HD should come with the following specification, though may differ at the time of launch.

  • 4.3-inch WVGA Touch Screen
  • 8-Megapixel Camera
  • 1GHZ Qualcomm Processor
  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • HD 720p Video Capture
  • Xvid Video Playback
  • SRS Surround Sound
  • Adobe Flash 10 Support
  • 4GB Internal Memory (up to 32GB)
  • Uni-Body Aluminium Design

Nothing too far-fetched, yet nothing to snub your nose at either. Expect this to be one of many great Android devices HTC intends to unleash, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t the highest-end phone that they release by the end of this year. The rumored Scorpion could come packing a 1.5GHz processor, but we’ll believe it when we see it.

The one issue I see from this video that bothers me is the fact that the 3.5mm headphone jack in on the bottom of the handset. I just don’t like it, and I have no problem being picky, as there will be many high-end Android phones with headphones jacks on the top. Just a preference, not necessarily a deal-breaker.

What do you think of HTC’s upcoming beast? Check out the video to see what the king of Android plans to bring us sometime soon.
