HTC Holiday Turns Up Again, This Time on 4G LTE Possibily Showing Impressive Speeds

Another leaked photo of the HTC Holiday has surfaced, and while we aren’t treated to anything particularly new here hardware or software wise, we do get a glimpse of the phone apparently being tested on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The HTC Holiday is set to be one of AT&T’s first 4G LTE handsets set to come out by the end of the year. As of now, only Samsung are rumored to be bringing a variant of either the Galaxy S or S II with LTE radios inside.

The HTC Holiday will meet high-end expectations with some nice specs inside. We’ll be seeing a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor powering things under the hood while we’re getting a 4.5 inch qHD display and an 8 megapixel camera on the surface. For software we’re getting Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0, and we can’t imagine an update to Sense 3.5 is out of the question.

Oh, and as for that LTE performance? Well, we’re having a hard time believing that this thing is pulling down 29 megabits and sending 6. The WiFi signal is on in all of the photos showing the status bar, but oddly enough the status bar isn’t shown in the speed test photo.

The speed test app does say “Lte” under “Network”, but we elect to remain skeptical. But trust me, we really do want to believe that AT&T is capable of sending and receiving that much data even if the network isn’t really all that congested right now. I guess time will tell. [BGR]

    4g is useless, 3g is fast enough, the real problem is the price, not the speed.
    Actually the price isn’t the problems if you are American, there are at least some proper unlimited data plans there.

      Uh really? Ever tried watching netflix on 3G? Blows. Or downloading a large file before you swap towers and lose the constant connection? 1.5 mbps is NOT enough for that. My evo 3d gets 10 or so and its still barely enough. Everyone needs/wants something different.

        Think you missed the /sarcasm tag…
        Zi’s response was pretty much “oh yeah? try and watch youtube, let alone netflix, in the center of boston” to Dario’s “3g is fast enough…”

      come to the center of boston and try to watch a youtube video with 3g.

    At times I have gotten 5mbps on T-Mo 3g and had no problems with my Vibrant and still get 8 mbps on my Sensation consistantly. Netflix has no problems playing clear. Oklahoma City, OK

    I Think This Guy Is On His Wifi, Every Time You See LTE It’s In All Caps, Not Lte He Probably Changed His SSID To Lte

    I guess the speeds make sense considering almost no one is using att’s lte network. I hope that makes sense.

    Anyway, the phone looks and sounds awesome. The only thing my Atrix doesn’t have is LTE capability. That may start to make me jealous once these LTE devices start to come out.

    Why so hard to believe? I’ve had over 33Mbps on my TBolt on Speedtest on launch week back in March. I got 29s a lot back then.
