CES 2012 turns out to be a propitious for Windows Phone fans. HTC and AT&T has announced predecessor of HTC flagship product- the Titan II. Of course, HTC Titan is/was the leader of Windows Phone beasts. However, earlier series of leaks instigated many debates amongst WP fans about what future hold for us.
Yes, HTC Radiant is Titan II. This is also dubbed as first ever Windows Phone with real LTE support aimed to target gadgets fan in US. HTC Titan II will be released exclusively on AT&T carrier in US in next few months (no ETA is available as of yet).
No doubt that its elder brother Titan had gigantic screen, and Titan II continues the same legacy — features 4.7-inch super LCD capacitive touch-screen. It packs whopping 16MP digital camera with 720p HD video recording capability.
Glance at HTC Titan II Specs and Features
- 1.5GHz Snapdragon S2 single-core processor
- 4.7-inch super LCD capacitive touch-screen
- Whopping 16MP rear camera with dual LED flash
- 1.3MP Front-facing camera
- LTE and HSPA+ support
- 16GB internal storage
- 512MB RAM
- 720p HD video recording capability
- 1730mAh battery
Compared to predecessor Titan II integrates more powerful camera and network support. Unlike, its predecessor the whopping 16MP camera provide crystal clear images, but supports only 720p HD video recording. Support of Full-HD would have been a welcome move,but I guess, we have to wait for a while for Titan III to come out with similar feature.
Titan II will be riding on AT&T 4G LTE network, boasting itself as a first ever Windows Phone to integrate LTE network support. HTC will be hoping to capture more market share with LTE network support, but it has furious battle to win against android device.
Even Nokia Lumia 900 will give it a good run for money, since it also supports LTE network. Finally, we have started getting decent Windows Phone devices with good hardware configuration, which is pretty much a basic need of normal US user. Like Lumia series device, HTC has adopted unibody design, which means you can not longer detach the battery from the phone.
The phone weigh 5.2 ounces, which is bit hefty in Windows Phone family. The 1730mAH battery upgrade from 1600mAh is fine and dandy, and will last for a day or so on power hungry LTE network. Nokia Lumia 900 wins battle as far as battery matters.
Price and availability
HTC press release has already been out giving out all the details. However, no information has been given regarding the price and release date of this device. The press release reads ‘in the coming months’. It will safe to assume that it will be released along-with Lumia 900 in march.
