Photo of HTC Runnymede with Beats Audio leaked
Plenty of information on HTC’s first smartphone to offer Beats Audio technology, currently codenamed Runnymede, has been leaked but now the first press-quality images of the device have been posted by a Chinese retailer. The photo above clearly shows a Beats logo on the backside of the phone, which appears to be made of metal. The Runnymede could have similar specs to another leaked Beats phone, the HTC Vigor, and is expected to come equipped with a huge 4.7-inch WVGA Super LCD screen, 16GB or 32GB of storage, “SRS surround sound with acoustic performance tuned by Beats,” a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video, support for 14.4Mbps HSDPA networks and a 1.3-megapixel camera for video chats. The Runnymede is expected to ship with an HTC Beats Solo headset, too. Hopefully we’ll hear more about the package during HTC’s NYC press event on September 20th.
