The HTC HD2 is one of the hottest phones on the market right now, even though it packs Windows Mobile 6.5, one of the more lackluster mobile OSes in existence. The HD3 will be its Windows Phone 7 series packing successor. PocketNow reports that concept renders of this new, semi-mythic entity have surfaced.
This device is said to pack an "upgraded" 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, backed up by 1 GB of RAM and 1 GB of ROM. It sports an 8 MP camera with a dual-LED flash, an 1800 mAH battery, and a 4.5" AMOLED screen. As beautiful as this sounds, there are a few issues with these rumors; 4.5" is a very unlikely size for a phone display, and the 1280x800 resolution given is not supported by WP7S.
The new design given for this phone looks very slick, and these renders were clearly put together by someone with a good deal of expertise. I certainly hope so. We know an HD3 has to be heading out for WP7S. It makes sense that Microsoft would want to have a blazing-fast smartphone to headline their new OS.
