By Updated on

We have some more feedback for you on the impressive-looking HTC Titan II now, HTC’s brand new handset that was unveiled at CES 2012 which features Windows Phone OS and a 16 megapixel camera amongst other things.

We now have a video preview to show you, which gives you a brief tour through the hardware featured on the device, not to mention giving you a first look at the device in the flesh direct from the CES show floor.

As we told you earlier this week, the Titan II is Microsoft and AT&T’s first 4G LTE Windows Phone and obviously the first handset to come with a 16 megapixel camera in the US. A video posted by Phonedog gives you a runthrough of how the device feels in the hand, and a general look at the other hardware specs featured on the device.

To recap you on what the Titan II runs on, it features a single-core 1.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 4.7-inch S-LCD display screen and an Adreno 205 GPU. The 16 megapixel camera is obviously very impressive on paper, but the downside to the hardware on the Titan II is that it only comes with 512MB of RAM. Then as we hear whispers about quad-core smartphones entering the market in 2012, the idea of single-core phones such as the Titan II may be a major turn-off for consumers. It could be the biggest catch 22 smartphone of the next few months – the first 16 megapixel smartphone, at the expense of a single-core CPU and half the RAM of the now 1GB standard.

Take a look at the video for yourself and let us know your initial impressions on the Titan II. Do you believe that this could go on to be HTC’s best handset of 2012, or will you perhaps wait for more information regarding the quad-core HTC Edge?

    wp7 wont run on more cores til Apollo, and doesnt need more than 1gz first gen snapdragon to run nice and smoothly, this runs on 1.5gh 2nd gen, its a real powerful beast (this is not android which still lags on quadcore prototypes) and has the ultimate camera, proven not to be just numbers but a real amazing quality 16mp capture device.

    A 16 megapixel camera means squat if it doesnt work any better than a 5megapixel camera in low light for example. smartphone cameras also work off smaller vital bits so their results arent going to be as good as dedicated cameras even if they have 100 megapixels. Best thing is if they have a decent lens like a zeiss and auto focus,the rest is a compromise under a wide range of conditions and in the lap of the gods.
