HTC Rezound slipped out by Verizon itself
Verizon on Sunday spoiled HTC's November 3 event by posting ads for the Rezound. While they don't show more than a product shot, they do confirm the Beats Audio connection, including the signature red-corded headphones and red light-up navigation keys. The ads hint the phone might be ready to go soon after the event.
The Rezound, sometimes known as the Vigor, is expected to be HTC's most advanced US phone. It will be a slight spin on the Raider, already available in Canada, and revolve around a very sharp 4.5-inch, 720x1280 screen. A dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and LTE-based 4G will also put it at the high end, although Verizon's model will logically use CDMA for voice instead of the GSM and HSPA of the Raider.
Despite being timed for within days of the Galaxy Nexus arriving in stores, HTC's phone will still ship with Android 2.3, although it may get HTC's latest Sense 3.5 interface. [via Droid-Life]
