HTC Ruby to be Named HTC Amaze 4G?

A source of PocketNow‘s has mentioned that the HTC Ruby – which is shaping up to be a pretty good phone – will be branded the HTC Amaze 4G when it heads to T-Mobile shelves. It’s going to be a beast of a phone with the strongest dual-core processor inside of an HTC device yet – it’s clocked at 1.5GHz. It’ll also have a 4.3 inch qHD display, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera with a front facing camera and Android 2.3. It’s definitely a fitting name, if true.

    the specs on the Ruby & Hercules are so similar. what’s even more funny is how many people on this forum live or die by their favorite brands. Looks like we got our way though, HTC? Sure we’ve got that! Oh you want samsung? Sure we’ve got that as well!

      Sammy’s has a 4.5in screen and is thinner. Will probably have better battery life too.

        i’m tired of measuring myself in fraction of inches ;)

        There are tradeoffs. The Ruby is qHD and looks like it will have an aluminum unibody. You will probably be right about the battery life, but the size of the battery in the Ruby hasn’t been leaked.

        You just proved his point…

    Names should be nouns, not verbs. It sounds silly.

    • wielandrew

      I think even generic nouns sound silly when it comes to phones.

    This new HTC and the Sammy GS2 are going to be fun in phonedogs head-to-head!

    Any news on launch date? Hspa+ 42mbits speeds support?

    Being a big HTC fan I think I would take this over the Samsung GS2.
