Leaked ROM shows HTC Holiday is to have a 4.5" qHD display and dual-core Snapdragon CPU

Leaked ROM shows HTC Holiday is to have a 4.5" qHD display and dual-core Snapdragon CPU
That free-range HTC Holiday is supposed to roam the wide networks of AT&T, and, rumor has it, even make a cameo on the carrier's upcoming LTE network. It was leaked a while ago, together with an upcoming HTC Puccini tablet, but no specs info was available then, except that the tablet might be with a 10" display.

Now we have more details on the hardware, thanks to a leaked system test, and they might make you smile with happiness, depending on whether you like large screens or not. Not to be outdone by Samsung, which has its 4.5" display size slapped on the Infuse 4G, HTC might be placing a 4.5-incher of its own on the phone with the internal name HTC Holiday, and with 540x960 pixels of qHD resolution to boot.

And this is not all - judging from the leak, the manufacturer has arguably placed a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU while at it, and added 1GB of RAM. 8MP camera on the back, and 1.3MP front-facing cam round out the HTC Holiday. The handset is supposed to run Andorid 2.3.4, if the system image dump is to be believed.

We can only imagine the battery capacity this Hulk of a phone must have to eventually power both an LTE connection, and a huge 4.5" display. If it gets built in the usual for HTC aluminum unibody stylee, we won't even try to imagine how solid it will feel either.

Thanks, Philip!

@luislopez as de ser muy gringo verdad? Para querer que te hablen en ingles Con ese nombre tan naco.. anyways I'm with omar on this one just because the thunderbolt was thick doesn't mean this phone will be thick. And he doesn't have to be a stalker I as he probably does come on this website everyday and read everybodys answer including urs that doesn't make us stalkers. So since u read other peoples answers then that makes u a stalker too.

Damn I feel like kicking myself not waiting for the HTC Holiday this will be better than the 4G Sensation. Just wish I never bought my Atrix feels like it's getting older by the minute

well, With tegra3 (quadcore) on its way you will probably feel the same after buying the Holliday. :) So don;t look to much ahead enjoy your Atrix.

@ luis lopez y tu como cabrones sabes que va estar grande y grueso este telefono? It has not even been released yet.. it has the same screen size as the infuse 4g which I got and its the thinest phone I have had up to now.. so maybe this phone is going to be thin too .. u never know If u think the screen size is too big for u then its easy just dont get it. I always read ur comments and I noticed that half of the time u never have anything good to say about phones. And u get thumbed down a lot. Because this phone has not even been released yet and and your already talking shit.

English please, and Retard! The infuse is not LTE enable. Have you seen The Thunderbolt which has LTE its way thicker than the EVO 4G and Inspire. LTE Antennas take up alot of space. ALSO if its LTE expect a Battery hog. It would be stupid to give it a little battery. And No one asked for a 4.5" screen we are all impressed by the 4.3 and Normal 4 screens. And Oh i see that you stalk me now??? Get a life Also, I only criticize a phones Physical appearance, but when it comes to Performance im all eyes for it, like this phone im actually happy HTC Got it right with dual core and LTe unlike the thunderbolt. Again, get a life :)

Hmm sounds good but I just wanna know how fast atts Lte network is going to be??!? I found a few articles online I'm too lazy to post them up but if u search around ull find it that supposedly there testing atts Lte network on an htc phone and are getting something like 50 mbps up and 40 mbps down. Not sure if its real or not. But if that were tru that would be awesome.

I think this will be a decent phone I agree about a better camera lens I think the iPhone 4 has one of the better cameras and if they stick to the same upgrades as normal referring to apple that is they will probably improve the camera on iPhone 5 lets hope so anyway if apple does not come up with a great refresh instead of a good refresh I could see a lot of people looking to other phone company for better hardware and software only time will tell looks as if we will have to wait until June to see but I'm pretty sure apple has a few tricks up their sleeves!

Why do all HTC phones have 8Mp camera? Actually, almost all high-end smartphones have 5 or 8Mp cameras (Sony ericsson Xperia Arc, HTC Sensation, Desire HD, ...). Imagine a HTC Sensation or Xperia Arc with a camera even better than Nokia N8! Why do all manufacturers try to impress us with the processor (1Ghz+, dual-core, ....), gigantic screens (4,3" and bigger) and more stuff like that, and why don't they improve camera-wise? :-(

Agree! I for one feel its not necessary for a phone to have a 4.5 or 5" screen it's nice but a 4" is ideal for the job manufacturers keep making large phones soon we're not going to be able to carry them in our own pockets anymore. I also say 5 Mp camera is just fine but if you were to give it a very nice lens the picture and video would double or even triple in quality. Nokia and Sony know's this that's why they make some really nice phone cameras but hey what can you do when you complain to the company's and all they do is make shit bigger then better.

The reason they dont make the cameras higher megpixels is because it is pointless on a cell phone to do so. The human eye wont see a diference on a 4 or 5 inch screen with the megapixel being 8 to 13. The only time you will see a diference is if you plan on printing a picture that will be a 8x10 or bigger. A 4x6 photo will look the same weather it was taken by a 8 mp or a 20 mp., In all honestly it would be over kill and a waste of money to put cameras any bigger. Now making it dual core or having a bigger processor is impressive which is why companies do it and makes sense because it actually make the phone perform much better. Less lag time between everything games and videos run smoother. Even taking picture will be easy and quicker Because of this. Just slapping a bigger camera in it is simple and not impressive at all since it is just a camera and you wont get a better quality pic on the tiny screen. I figure this was commom sense but since two of you asked this it makes me laugh .

well, you probably already know the answer: specs sell. I agree, i rather had a great 3m cam than a bad 8m cam. (full HD is 2m). Althoug i think the bigger the screen the better as long as it fits in my pocket.

To your last statement...maybe because (drum roll) they're phones! Not cameras! If you have a need for quality pictures I'd invest in a camera you know because they're designed to take pictures instead of make phone calls and browse the web.
