HTC Kingdom, HTC Rider and HTC Doubleshot leaked out

Welcome the HTC Kingdom, the HTC Rider and the HTC Doubleshot – the newest additions to the Taiwanese manufacturer's lineup, freshly leaked on the Chinese internets.

We don't know much about the HTC Kingdom but we do know that it's coming with a qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels), putting it in the same high league as the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation. The HTC Kingdom resembles closely the Thunderbolt with its wide ear speaker and we wouldn't be surprised to see it land overseas as a reincarnation of the 4G heavyweight. Further details however are scarce as the blurry shot only reveals a book app running on what looks like Android.

The HTC Rider also looks familiar – with its four rounded physical buttons, we were reminded of the HTC EVO 3D. But the HTC Rider has a wide speaker grill and the front-facing snapper on the right side. Whispers suggest it's a close copy of the EVO 3D, slated for the Old Continent, but we couldn't confirm this just yet.

Finally, the HTC Doubleshot is the most mysterious one of all. We could only find a user agent profile confirming a screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and a QWERTY keyboard. It will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Hopefully all of those new phones will come with the latest Sense UI, so stay tuned as hopefully more details will show up soon.

Thanks, Philip!

Personally I really am not that concerned with the aesthetics of the phone (as long as it's not a brick). What I am mainly concerned with is the performance, i.e. reception, call quality, battery life, speed, etc...

Totally with you, except I have given up on battery life. Give me most of what I want, I will buy an extra charger. Someday batteries will catch up, but not in this calander year. Just the trade off for all the high tech we want.

What exactly is a full screen touchphone supposed to look like??? What do you want, glitter? stickers of bunnies? little ears that stick out? secret luggage rack? I guess that all flatscreen tvs look alike to you as well.

Yeah most HTC phones look alike....but that isn't 'such' a bad thing. They should make a new model with a similar design to the Touch Diamond, then that would be something interesting!

yes, i agree, all HTC androids have the same designs. i don't know what's with the rounded four edge corner. htc diamond 2 has no successor!!!!
