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.
