HTC Desire HD Specifications

HTC has just officially unveiled the HTC Desire HD which can be simply described as the European version of the HTC EVO 4G (without the Wimax Radio) because the hardware specification of the device are identical (besides the SLCD panel). Update: Well it looks like the device apparently features the new MSM8255 SoC (with the Adreno 205 GPU)! This will hopefully be the chipset used by HTC for the Windows Phone 7 devices. Similar to the HTC Desire Z, the Desire HD will also be sporting Android 2.2 with the new Sense UI once it hits retail (and Vodafone) on October 13th. One of the newest addition is the face Recognition feature implemented in the camera software like the original HTC Desire ( Dobly and SRS surround sound + DLNA have also been added) but I guess that this will also finds it way in the US devices sooner or later.

    You need to do your homework, the standard HTC Desire also features Face Detection on the camera, it’s nothing new.
