HTC Holiday for AT&T gets detailed: dual-core CPU, 4.5-inch qHD screen, and Gingerbread

AT&T may have just released the Samsung Infuse 4G, but the carrier is not resting on its laurels. Ma Bell is already working with HTC on its next superphone — codenamed Holiday. According to a leaked system test, the device has all the right characteristics of a top-seller phone. For example:

  • Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
  • 1.2 GHz Dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 CPU
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 4.5-inch display with a 540 x 960 resolution
  • 8MP back-facing camera
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • AT&T’s 4G support

Looking at the Holidays specs, it seems like the Motorola Atrix 4G is about to face some fierce competition on its own backyard. With the recent news of side-loading support and the avalanche of high-end phones that’s coming, maybe AT&T is really getting serious about Android. Keep an eye out for the Holiday, which will certainly be one of the hottest devices available this summer/winter.

    So, the screens are getting bigger, the processors are getting faster, the ram is getting larger and power intensive features are getting added such as 4g and an extra camera. They didn’t leak the battery specs. I hope it is at least around 1900mah like the Motorola Atrix 4G otherwise i’m not interested. Is it just me or does HTC seem to be skimping on the batteries?

      They do use smaller batteries but judging by the Incredible 2 and Inspire, the battery life doesn’t seem to suffer compared to phones with larger batteries. Of course, when you throw an LTE radio (keep in mind “4G” from AT&T and T-Mobile currently doesn’t use hungry LTE radios), the battery life goes to hell.

    Wow, before we had competition to make them small, now its about making them bigger lol :D

    • Caleb

      Too right! If they make them any bigger it is just going to get ridiculous. They are only 1.5 inches away from the Samsung Galaxy tab 7 inch

          Damn, that will teach me! I think you might have guessed that maths isn’t my strong point :)

        Hmmmm, did I miss something? 4.5 + 1.5 now equals 7??

      make em 5 inches like your dicks…

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    WOW WOW WOW. I hope this isn’t going to be the new trend… 4.3 is big enough. 4.5 is really pushing it. I used the Infused at At&t and is to the point of unnecessary. To be honest.

    • http://Website Oreo

      Look at it this way though that means there’ll be more choices in the 4.3 and 4 in department and the 4.5 will be the new for need a big, but not five in. You know. On possibility is a 4.3 in keyboard phone coming out who know. Just a thought.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I honestly feel like if HTC (especially HTC) starts pushing out 4.5inchers they will just phase out the 4.3inch line.

    • http://Website Farhan

      I’d like to see the 4.5″ screen on the frame of a 4.3″ phone. Right now there’s some unused space that can be used to increase the screen size without making the phone bigger in size.

        I thought I was the only one who thought that.

    AT&T 4G support….every time I read that it makes me laugh so hard. What a joke. I cant believe the ITU gave in and now anything can be called 4G including two tin cans and string.

      @Derek too bad I could only +1 that comment
      lol all day

    More power hungry feature announcements but NO announcement of adequate battery tech or features.

    iPhone 5 will crush this phone!

    “1.2 GHz Dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 CPU”

    Isn’t the MSM8660 the CDMA cpu? AT&T would be using it’s GSM variant, the MSM8260.

    Screen = too big like the Infuse.

    “Hey look. Johnny’s browsing pr0n at work!”

    I am happy to see at&t get serious about android these specs are Evo 3d definitely. I can only hope this 4.5 screen makes it to my next quadcore Evo in 2012.

  • http://Website Phil

    If AT&T wants to keep me they will launch this phone this month!

    • http://Website James

      Yeah I was kinda thinking the same thing. My iPhone 3GS just came up to its upgrade allowance. I would love to have this phone. With the dual camera’s, its like a grown up iPhone 4. I would love to wait and see what Apple does for the iPhone, but man, they are just so dang slow in bringing anything out that is remotely keeping my interest. Also the difference in speeds and memory on both phones is like night and day!

      I guess we will see :)
