Description

HTC Amaze 4G appears to be focused in the photo and video taking side as it seemingly encompasses the camera-centric offerings we’ve seen already with the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide. For starters, it features a backside illuminated 8-megapixel shooter with dual-LED flash in the rear, which is touted as offering zero shutter lag for those intent on snapping photos in the moment. Moreover, it packs 1080p video capture to complement its already boastful camera-centric offerings. Besides all of the camera stuff, the HTC Amaze 4G is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor to deliver an amazing Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread experience. Not stopping there, it also features a 4.3” qHD Super LCD display, NFC capabilities, and 4G HSPA+ connectivity.
