The 4.3” LCD display on the HTC HD7S sports the same 480x800 pixels of resolution, but the “S” means that the screen is now of the Super LCD variety, unlike the plain vanilla LCD of old, exhibiting higher contrast, brighter, vivid colors, and better viewing angles right before our eyes.
Not to mention it should be more power-efficient than the LCD on the HTC HD7. Have a look at the few pictures we snapped of the new screen on the HTC HD7S:
The handset offers a remarkably good fit in the hand, because it feels very compact for its screen size, with curved edges everywhere, and soft-touch plastic on the back. All the rest of the usual WP7 goodies are onboard – 1GHz Snapdragon chipset and protruding 5MP camera with dual LED flash that does HD video recording.
There is a kickstand tucked around the camera area, which comes in very handy for watching movies on the large screen. You should be able to store enough of those movies on the handset, since HTC has graced it with 16GB of internal memory.
AT&T's HTC HD7S will ship with the latest version of Windows Phone 7, which means an even more fluid performance, and the copy/paste update onboard. AT&T didn't hesitate to slap its carrier-specific software on it, as we could easily see the U-Verse TV service app winking at us from a double-tile on the homescreen in nasty orange.
As for availability, it shouldn't be long, AT&T has set up a preview website, where you can enter your email address to get notified for the HTC HD7S arrival. In the meantime, you can read our in-depth review of the original to catch a notion what you will be dealing with on AT&T.
