First Look: HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)

2:02 /

At the New York unveiling of the HTC Rezound, we take a look at this powerful 4G LTE hitting Verizon stores for the holidays. The outside may look similar to the HTC Incredible, but the Rezound is packed with a better screen, camera, and comes with Beats Audio technology.

-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET TV here at the launch event for the HTC Resound on Verizon. Now, this is a pretty powerful phone. It's gonna be top of the line. You're gonna have 1.5 gigahertz processor. Inside, you're also gonna get 16 gigs of internal memory and an SD card that has another 16 gigs attached to it, but let's talk about the screen. This is a 4.3-inch high definition 720p screen. The first time you're gonna see that of HTC. So, the camera is 8 megapixels with the flash, and it records at 1080p HD, and the camera itself has a few extra little features in it like being able to take action per shots will be faster, play back your video in slow motion, and the camera is design to really intake a lot of light more so than other cameras. So, supposedly, you should be able to take some really good shots and little lighting, takes a lot of hints from the HTC incredible in terms of design, kind of a curved back, kind of this soft textured finish on the back with some red highlights, and that beat here is for Beats audio. That's the big standout feature on this because they integrated audio technology, so your music is gonna sound little better and it comes with Beats audio headphones. You're also gonna notice HTC Sense 3.5, which has unique new features like having your customizable icons on the lock screens like a take it, and just kind of drag it right into there, so it will immediately open up my messages, mail, whatever wanna put in there. Also, when you go into leap view, you will able to customize the order of each of these screens or just drag one and delete it right from here. Overall, I could tell it's a very smooth experience. I only had a few minutes with it, but just by looking at some of the videos, very sharp and bright imagery. So, we'll just take it back to our labs to get a really longer look at it, but initially, it's pretty sweet. It comes Ice Cream Sandwich ready, so it's gonna have Gingerbread to start, but expect an update on Ice Cream Sandwich, say maybe at the beginning of next year, and it's gonna be available on November 14th from Verizon at $299.99. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey.
