HTC are in the midst of announcing their lineup of new handsets for MWC 2011, but we have just heard about a secret handset which definitely isn’t on that list. It’s called the HTC Revolver, and it’s apparently due for release on AT&T before the end of 2011.
According to this report by Engadget, an image sent to them by their anonymous tipster reveals a button-less unusual dome shaped handset which is said to be packing Android 3.0 Honeycomb by the time it releases during the third quarter of this year.
Of course this has yet to be confirmed by AT&T, but this tipster has even given a list of initial specs for the device. If the information proves to be legit, the Revolver will come equipped with a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel rear camera with a 3 megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage memory.
This handset is apparently HTC’s flagship handset for 2011, and is backed up by the fact that it runs on Honeycomb, the same operating system which has seemingly only suited for tablet devices. Check out the image over at Engadget and let us know your thoughts on it.
We’ve been keeping an eye on HTC’s MWC 2011 presser and we can definitely confirm that the Revolver isn’t on the list of handsets which have been announced. We’ll be bringing you details on the handsets that have been unveiled soon. Let us know your reaction to this Honeycomb handset. Mouthwatering specs aren’t they?
Update: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like this handset is a fake.
