Admittedly pricey, the Rezound features include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory (with preinstalled 16GB microSD card), and the latest version of HTC Sense. The smartphone is expected to get an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012.
The Rezound will also have integrated Beats Audio technology and come with a pair of custom Beats headphones. The companies promise that the smartphone will deliver deeper bass and crisper vocals, with the new technology. HTC acquired a majority stake in Beats Electronics in August, and this is the first U.S.-specific device to highlight their partnership.
On back, you'll find the Rezound's main 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. The camera has a f2.2 lens and can record 1080p HD video. HTC has also enhanced the camera app with such tools as instant capture, panorama mode, burst mode, and slow motion for videos.
The Rezound is HTC's first smartphone to feature a 720p HD display. The touch screen measures 4.3 inches diagonally. As expected, the handset will come preloaded with a number of Verizon services and apps, including NFL Mobile.
