The HTC Pyramid Will Be A T-Mobile 4.3″ Dual-Core Android Phone

Sometimes a rumor comes along that is just to good to pass up running, even so it’s still very much just a rumor without much to back it up.  Uncovering details on the upcoming HTC “Pyramid,” went a little smoother when I did a little asking around and discovered our friends at Androidandme had also heard the same story, albeit from a separate source. While uncovering the codename was slightly easier than uncovering the details for so many of you, a 4.3″ Android phone is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. Thankfully the folks at Androidandme were able to uncover some details and we can say that we expect a 1.2 Ghz dual-core, 4.3″ qHD screen, 4G capable Android phone that should please all T-Mobile Android fans who have been waiting, wishing and hoping for a larger screen. Other than this small amount of info we’re short on details, specs and at this time, we’re running with a late Q2 launch date.

So while I can’t say anything else about this phone, we know it’s going to be something worth keeping an eye on. While we know “Pyramid” isn’t the final product name, for now it’s what we’re going on with this mysterious Android device that will finally give the T-Mobile faithful the 4.3″ Android phone they have been waiting for.

    That’s a really bad codename considering what’s going down in Egypt.

    Nonetheless, can’t wait for more specifics. Seems that either HTC or LG will be taking my money this year.

    Since this is going to be an HTC phone, I hope that they don’t crap it up by making it a part of the MyTouch Line-up. Those phones are crap! The HTC MyTouch 4G looks like a teeny bopper phone. Pleasssssseeee T-Mobile, make this a phone worth buying.

  • Anonymous

    If it resembles a cheap mytouch, no thanks. If it’s typical HTC build, I’m in.

  • Majeedelias

    YES FINALLY!!!!!! PLEASE LET THIS COME TO T-mobile and not look like a playskool phone!!!! My Nexus One is about to die!

  • Datguy

    hmm pyramid might mean a 3D screen……….. perfect thing to bring tmobile back on top. 3D tablet and 3D phone

  • Anonymous

    ok….I’m amazed no one said it (sang it), but if I get this phone, I’m gonna “TALK LIKE AN E-GYPTIANNNN”

  • 127168

    I never complain seriously when it comes to t-mobile but come on. I really don’t understand this 4 inches and higher hype. I hardly ever see people the with the Droid X, Evo, and Epic. Seriously I a few with them but the keyword a few. Seriously phones like this aren’t that popular with the mass consumer. Maybe this phone will be. Again to me anything over 3.9 is pointless.

    Tmo needs a device with sense. They already get all the vanilla phones. I love my n1 and ns. But I like sense on a day to day phone.

    • Whatever

      with that name u should be a geek. Just root your phone and run a Sense Rom

  • Big Al 4000

    I hope there is an unbranded version released of this, otherwise I will stick with the 4.3″ Android phone I already have (HD2) that doesn’t make me pay $30/month for internet

    • Whatever

      You know you can just get the phone on contract with the discount , and later on switch your monthly plan to one without data. I’ve done it. Just say u broke it by accident and now u r using a dumbphone.

    I’m waaaay late to this party!!

    This is definitely what I’ve been waiting for and I can’t wait to see this thing hit the wild(it’s only a matter of time). We might even see it announced at MWC.

    Thx for starting my day off right TMONEWS!

    I think T-Mobile is doing good this year with all these good phone including this one that I read on Phandroid about the playstation phone

    First rumored phone coming to Tmobile this year, that’s actually worth buying. Hopefully these specs are correct. It would be had to suffer another Nexus S type of disappointment. BTW, I hope Samsung galaxy S2 is also coming to Tmo, and we’ll see how it’s specs compare to that of the HTC pyramid.

    It would also be really good if this came as vanilla.

    I love the 4.3inches among other specs. Currently own a Nexus one and one thing I wish was different is the screen size. I’ve handled the Evo and absolutely loved the 4.3inches. I think all high end phones should have nothing less than 4inches, and 4.3 is just perfect.

    This might be TMO’s version of the HTC Thunderbolt.

    It’s been such a long time I’ve been waiting for a large, solid android phone to hit TMo…
    Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get this, as I already purchased the Vibrant a while ago…:(
    Still, though, I have my fingers crossed!

    • pantlesspenguin

      I don’t understand…why can’t you purchase this just because you’ve purchased a Vibrant?

      • Anonymous

        LOL cuz we aint all Mr. Money Bags! That said, I paid $500 cash for my Vibrant and I may or may not do the same with this phone. Meh, depends on how I feel when I wake up on launch day.

        • pantlesspenguin

          I pay full price for my phones, too. I always sell my old one to get the next & make most of my money back. I sold my Vibrant after 3 months for $350 to pick up the MT4G for $450. By the time this phone comes out, the Vibrant will be nearly a year old.

      • Anonymous

        Im givin mine to my moms only cuz I know the resale value on an outdated 1 year old Vibrant might not be half what I paid after taxes.

        Check this out. I paid $369 on contract for a TP2 in Aug. of 09′ and today its just a paperweight. I didn’t wanna piss anybody off by selling it to em and take a negative hit on my ebay account.

    If this rumor holds true, I will be able to let go of my Desire HD… 2G/Edge data is starting to annoy me.

    I’ll definitely be following this device for awhile! This sounds amazing. It’s going to take a beast of a phone like this to even get me to consider cheating on my MT4G.

    Whatever you do, HTC…. keep Sense UI off of it and I will probably buy it outright.

    HTC and tmobile can make it to the pont that sense can be activate or deactivate. that is not the problem. the problem is the frequency at which the phones are updated to new softwares or OS ( OTA updates). we don’t want to experiance the galaxy ”senario” again. I am so in this PYRAMID. I am really feeling T-Mobile this year. Sprint and ATT, watch it.

    Finally a phone that is truly worth upgrading to from by rooted G1. I have been able to make it by after rooting it, but its finally starting to catch up with me. I’ve been waiting a long time for the perfect device, Fast, FFC, Flash, 4G and large screen. I’m glad to hear that it will be HTC! (But could do without the Sense UI)

  • Darnell

    Finally, something that looks like a true “upgrade” from my HD2 running Froyo!
    Thanks T and HTC.

    Gosh Darn…I finally see a reason to sell my vibrant and leave Samsung and their lackluster support behind. And I want to echo everyone else…none of the mytouch crap or sliding keyboard. I want to be able to find a nice case, and please have a larger battery.

    This is my grown up pre-Christmas wish, please, please, please, pppppppppplllllllleeeeeaaaaaaasssssseeeee!!!!!

    Finally!!!! …..T-Mobile stepping up to the plate …I’m on a non-contract plan and Verizon and the iPhone 4,Thunderbolt, Droid Bionic and even the Droid X are calling me like sexy women dressed in red inviting me to a big red inferno….But I’m holding out to see if tmobile brings out a phone with a 4.3 inch. Android based (Not windows!!!!) That I can finally fall in love with and I can compete with these cocky iPhone users and be happy ….And that’s when I’ll sign another contract!!!! …..So I hope the pyramid is really good…so I’m gonna hold off a little more, hope it’s worth it….hopefully its not another Motorola cliq 2(what a let down!!!!) …..

    This is the phone that should have been offered to us instead of the HD2 and the Mytouch 4G….Don’t get me wrong I know the mytouch 4G is a nice device and all but this would have been a more competition and sold more……So even though I have purchased a vibrant this past summer, I will be ponying up for this )unless something better is offered).

      The Hd2 was released about a year and a half ago, what does it have to do with this phone?? HTC should have just waited and not released the HD2 or Evo?
