Does the HTC Ruby have a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon under its hood?
We recently reported that the HTC Ruby was headed to T-Mobile, thanks to pictures that show the carrier's branding on the case of the handset. At the time, we had no idea if this was to be a budget priced phone for the kiddies, or a heavy duty, high-end device for power users. As it turns out, specs of the device obtained by TmoNews suggest that the HTC Ruby fits into the latter category.

Expected to have a 4.3 inch qHD display, under the hood it appears that the handset will have a lightening fast 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. Add to that 1GB of RAM, rear and front-facing cameras (8MP and 2MP respectively) with separate camera and video buttons. There is support for Bluetooth 3.0. And if you're thinking that it sounds so wonderfully high-end, well, you'd be right. The only damage we see if these specs are correct, would be to the psychic well being of those who just bought the HTC Sensation 4G only to so quickly find that there is a new sheriff coming to town.

No word so far on a possible launch date or price for the HTC Ruby, which will seemingly compete with the upcoming Samsung Hercules for the heart, mind and wallet of T-Mobile's power users.
