Huge Leak of HTC’s 2010 Line Up!

So the motherload of leaks has been opened. The poster on XDA has decided to share with the world 8 new HTC devices that are to come out within quarters 1 and 2 of 2010.

From what I understand, someone got their hands on a brochure from an event where HTC presents their new devices to a manufacturer for them to look at and hopefully bid on picking up different devices (hence why in some images you will see TMobiles name, it does NOT mean that T-Mobile is getting the devices necessarily, just that this was T-Mobile’s brochure to take home).

His English isn’t the best but from what it seems he is saying that HTC will categorize their new phones into 4 categories:

  • Design/LifeStyle –
  • Social –
  • Performance –
  • Productivity

Within these categories there are a few phones each (some Windows Mobile and some Android):

I. Design/LifeStyle

A. Legend (Android)
B. Salsa (Android)

II. Social

A. Tide (Android)
B. Buzz (Android)

III. Performance

A. Bravo (Android)

IV. Productivity

A. Photon (Windows Mobile 6.5)
B. Trophy (Windows Mobile 6.5)
C. Tera  (Windows Mobile 6.5)

He then even goes as far as to post some pictures and specs sheets for each phone, I’ll go through them, real quick. Keep in mind that these are HTC’s codenames so the name of the device can change when and if it comes to the States (aka the Bravo could be the Dragon/Passion or even PassionC when it comes to a CDMA network, ehem):

I. “Legend”

HTC Legend Specs

Very slim Android device that resembles the Hero (this could be the Hero sequel we’ve heard about?).  Here’s the specs he shows:

  • 3.2 inch HVGA AMOLED Capacitive screen
  • 5.0MP with flash
  • 256MB RAM
  • 600Mhz Processor
  • GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth
  • 3.5mm Headphone jack
  • AND an OPTICAL MOUSE instead of a trackball…

II. “Salsa”

HTC Salsa Specs

This is a Dash shaped Android device, has a smart QWERTY keyboard underneath the touch screen. Heres the specs:

  • 2.6 inch QVGA touchscreen
  • 3.2MP Camera
  • 256MB RAM
  • 528Mhz Processor
  • Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack

III. “Tide”

HTC Tide Specs

The Tide is an Android touchscreen candybar phone with a regular 9 digit keypad. It comes preloaded with all the networking sites software (hence being under the Social category). Specs:

  • 2.68 inch QVGA touchscreen
  • 3.2MP camera
  • 256MBs of RAM
  • 528mhz Processor
  • Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS
  • 3.5mm Jack

IV. “Buzz”

HTC Buzz Specs

This is another Android social phone like the Tide but full touchscreen. Specs:

  • 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 5.0MP camera with flash
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 528mhz processor
  • Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack

V. “Bravo”

HTC Bravo Specs

So this is the HTC Passion/Dragon we’ve been hearing about. And I know your going to scream “Its the Bravo, everyone is so wrong saying the Dragon/Passion” and well we’re not wrong, yet…

This phone definitely looks like the phone we had pictured a while back that I said was DEFINITELY called the Passion and it just might still be. As with almost all HTC phones, HTC calls them one thing and then gives them different names as they goto different markets and carriers. So Bravo for HTC could still very well be called the Passion on Verizon and Dragon on T-Mobile or any combination of other names, so just because it is called Bravo on the HTC spec sheet does NOT mean it is not still coming as the Passion or some other name here in the US.

ALSO, the Passion MIGHT be the GooglePhone we have heard rumors of as well (wouldn’t be on this list since even though it will most likely be made by HTC it will be licensed to Google and produced as a Google manufactured phone). Just so we are all aware :) AND AGAIN SPECULATION, BUT JUST WANTED TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT THIS DOES NOT DISCOUNT ANY OTHER RUMORS AT THIS POINT SO RELAX!

Anyway, on to the phone of your Android dreams lol

If you have been following the stories on the Passion/Dragon you’ll already be aware that the rumor was that it would be an HD2 with Android for the most part and according to this guy at XDA and the spec sheets he provided, that is pretty damn close to what it will be. I’ll shut up and show you the specs now:

  • 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 5.0MP camera with flash and 720p HD Video recording
  • 256Mbs of RAM
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • Wifi, GPS, Bluetooth
  • 3.5mm Headphone jack

VI. “Photon”

HTC Photon Specs

The Photon begins the Productivity category, which seems to be HTCs way of saying Windows Mobile 6.5.

  • 3.2 inch HVGA Capacitive touchscreen
  • 5MP camera
  • 256Mbs of RAm
  • 600mhz Processor
  • Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack

VII. “Trophy”

HTC Trophy Specs

Snap/Dash style Windows Mobile 6.5 device.

  • 3.0 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 5.0MP camera
  • 256Mb of RAM
  • 600mhz Processor
  • Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS
  • 1400mah battery
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack

VIII. “Tera”

HTC Tera Specs

Tera seems way too similar to the Touch Pro2 by the way, but here are the specs:

  • 3.0 Touchscreen
  • 3.2MP camera
  • 256Mbs of RAM
  • 600mhz Processor
  • Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS
  • Slide out tilting QWERTY keyboard

Enjoy! Discuss!

Here is the original post on XDA-Developers:


THANKS Wonderbread!

  • dave

    well, maybe now that we’re passed the 30 day mark of the droid release we’ll hear something? Either way I guess we get a bit of our answer today or certainly this week, be it some passion release rumors or no info at all… does seem very unlikely that its out in 09 now… but boy there sure were a lot of “people who know people” who were sure about it coming out…

  • dave
  • dave

    3.5″ screen…. hmmmm. Well, a tiny bit of luster is lost…

  • G Zoe

    Wow. These line-Ups have limited RAM. I minds well stickwith my G1(which gets slower everyday). The cell phone industry wants to continue failing to the iPhone. Add better processors, slide out boards and style, we won’t have to mimic the iPhone. No more iPhone “Failures” and “wannabe’s”.


    Verizon’s Droid pooped on all T-Mobile phones LOL.

  • aooga

    I just want an HD2 release date. This info is great and all but who cares about 13 months from now.

  • Meia
  • Christopher

    and yet not one single phone says it is 1700 for T-Mo U.S.A….so….for all of us on T-Mo 3G (soon to be the fastest in the country) not one single one of these phones will work…go figure…

    • Christopher,

      Please read the comment I left a bit above… all phones start out as Euro phones with Euro frequencies then T-Mobile or whoever decides on the ones they like and order 300,000 from HTC and have HTC put 1700mhz in them (plus brand them etc) so just because there is no 1700 doesnt mean T-Mobile wont get it. Just like the fact that these are all GSM but it doesnt mean the Verizon or Sprint might now pick them up and have HTC make a CDMA version :) Dont lose hope! lol

  • Y314K

    Dave: Most of use believe that DigiTimes got the size of the screen wrong… Passion should be a 3.7″ OMLED..

    I just don’t know if that is the GPhone or not…lol

  • Meyer77

    Checkout the Bravo/Passion update @ Engadget.

    Look like its a go for January….

  • dave

    ok so whats the scoop now, engadget is reporting that the passion (same as bravo) is being released in January. Verizon? Tmo? both?

    • Dave,

      From what I read and found out it looks like the Bravo (HTCs name) will be released in the US Market (no carrier confirmed yet) as the Passion and it will also be released in Europe (not the US) as the HTC Bravo on T-Mobile UK in April.

  • Biggles

    Sounds like T-Mobile early and Verizon late, both January. I’m loving the specs! I’m ready to pick this up the day it’s released on Verizon.

  • dhill

    Biggles, where did you read about “Verison late”?

    I think the real question is why all these leaks about verizon a month+ ago are still quiet?

  • Noel

    These phone manufacturers are definately making it harder for one to decide on which phone to get..tons of smart phones coming out in 2010. But i know 4 sure i’ll own the Htc Bravo/Passion/Dragon or the GPhone what ever the name end up to be. But i can’t seem to loose sight of the Nokia N900. So it seems i’ll hv two smart phones and just inter change them depending on my choices galore
