HTC Pyramid to have 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon, heading to T-Mobile in Q2

HTC Pyramid to have 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon, heading to T-Mobile in Q2
Two tech blogs have independently confirmed what is still a rumor, but a juicy one. HTC has lined up a 4G device for T-Mobile, under the codename Pyramid, which is supposed to land on Big Magenta May or June.

The HTC Pyramid will be an all-out 2011 phone. The chipset is supposed to be Qualcomm's MSM 8260, a third generation Snapdragon, which has a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. While dual-core could be expected from a mid-2011 HTC flagship, the usual 4.3" screen size that the company uses for its high-end models, here receives the new and hip qHD resolution of 540x960 pixels, like the Motorola ATRIX 4G.

Thus the HTC Pyramid will carry the biggest screen with the highest resolution and the most powerful chipset in T-Mo's 4G lineup, if something else doesn't come up in the meantime. The MSM8260 chipset has the next generation Adreno 220 GPU, which will probably put Tegra 2 to shame. Watch a video of the chipset in action below, demoed by Qualcomm a few weeks ago at CES 2011.
