HTC Rezound with Beats Audio gets US unveiling

Superphone makes UK Sensation XE feel unloved

Sometimes with tech the US gets the better over us, especially in the case of HTC, while the Flyer looks OK, the US HTC EVO View 4G looked positively deadly

HTC has unveiled the HTC Rezound, a 4.5-inch 'superphone' that packs all of the best tech that HTC has to offer in one incredibly desirable package, all then wrapped in aluminium and Beats Audio technology.

Smaller than the UK HTC Sensation XL but yet also different in design from the Sensation XE it looks as though the Rezound is set to be the new flagship of HTC's US range of smartphones.

HTC Rezound specs

With a 4.3-inch screen the Rezound is the first HTC phone to offer up a true 720p display, yes that's right, it's a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 1280x720p, to put this into perspective the UK equivalent HTC Sensation XE has a resolution of just 540x960. Under the hood you'll find a huge 1.5GHz dual-core processor and with 1GB RAM this thing is unlikely to slow down, ever.

HTC Rezound features

Top add insult to injury the Rezound also has a 8MP snapper on the back with features like panoramic mode and a huge number of scenes that can be applied to the lens. It'll record full-HD 1080p video and comes with a 2MP front-facing camera and while it may only (we say only) be running the latest version of Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.5 it's Android Ice Cream Sandwich-ready with an update already confirmed for early 2012.

If those specs haven't made you jealous enough then the final cherry on top is that it has 4G and of course, comes full-loaded with Beats by Dr Dre Audio technology which means integration with all the media functions of the phone and comes with a pair of Beats by Dr Dre in-ear heaphones.

This goliath of the smartphone world is available in the US today with us in Britain only hoping that HTC will pull something similar out of the hat soon. What do you think of the HTC Rezound, is it the best smartphone they've ever made? Let us know what you think via the comments box below..
