HTC Bliss and Runnymede specs leaked

Remember the Android phone in development dubbed the HTC Bliss? Or how about the beastly 4.7-inch HTC Runnymede? At the time we knew few real specs, but today a full list of specifications for both phones have been outed.

The HTC Bliss sports a 3.7-inch Super LCD display at 800 x 480 resolution, tri-band 14.4Mbps HSPA, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera (that can do 720p video capture), Bluetooth 3.0, single-band 802.11n, and a front-facing VGA sensor for video calling. The source also mentions a “charm indicator” in the box, which is a light-up bauble used to show incoming calls while hanging out of a handbag.

Next is HTC’s Runnymede, which we think is basically the Windows-Phone Titan running Android , with similar specs like a 4.7-inch display and a single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor. The site also confirmed reports suggesting that the phone would be under 10mm thick saying “it barely makes the cut: 9.9mm, to be exact.” Other noteworthy features include:

  • 8-megapixel camera with 720p capture and dual-LED flash
  • 16GB of on-board storage
  • The Runnymede will be available in multiple SKUs, some of which will have Beats headsets in the box (yes, you heard right).

The source also says that the HTC Runnymede will be among the first HTC phones to take advantage of the company’s recent $300m partnership with Beats Audio. I think it’ll be very interesting to see how consumers gravitate to this phone, and having Beats Audio tided in may be the deciding factor — if the price is right.
