Rumored HTC Mondrian to go 1.3GHz
As if the current set of 1-gigahertz processors for smartphones isn’t fast enough, a rumored HTC Mondrian (could be the HTC HD3 or HTC Diamond3) with a 1.3GHz boost should be revealed by 3rd quarter this year.
The handset will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8650A/B 1.3GHz CPU on a 4.3″ screen (480×800 pixels). It will also run the new Microsoft Windows Phone 7 which should be interesting.
If it will be the HTC HD3, then we’ll expect the specs to be similar or better than the HD2:
4.3â€³ capacitive display @ 480 x 800 pixels
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP
5MP AF camera @ 2592 x 1944 pixels with LED flash
Stereo FM Radio tuner
GPS with A-GPS support
Rumors like this one could practically stop people from getting a new smartphone now and wait ’til the end of the year. To think the HTC Desire and the Evo 4G hasn’t even reached the Philippines.
