October 26th launch date leaks for the HTC Ruby and Samsung Hercules
The HTC Ruby is just as well endowed. A 4.3 inch qHD screen is on the front of the device with a fast 1.5GHz dual-core processor on board. The HTC Ruby is equipped with 1GB of RAM while the rear and front cameras come in at 8MP and 2MP respectively. Video is captured at 1080p. You can see that both handsets wouldn't back down an inch in a battle between the two. Both will offer 4G connectivity through HSPA+ connectivity and T-Mobile customers updating to a new phone might have to pick one model over the other.
As if to make matters worse for those with T-Mobile accounts, a leaked screenshot of the carrier's training material shows that both phones are expected to launch on October 26th. Two great handsets with similar high-end specs being released on the same day. Luckily for T-Mobile customers, they still have plenty of time to think it over. Which of these two Superphones would you select? Let us know by responding in the comment box below!
According to a leaked T-Mobile training document, both the HTC Ruby and the Samsung Hercules will launch on October 26th

The end of October feels forever away! And hows the Ruby really any better than the sensation other than the minor processor bump?

That's a long wait. From the two I would go with HTC. Unfortunately it doesn't come with 3D. Let's see if until then we hear anything about Tegra3 and it's quad core processor.

I currently have the Galaxy S and I LOVE it, but the HTC will have the dual core Snapdragon. This will be such a hard decision >.
