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.

    We are also waiting for a 5 line FULL QWERTY keyboard. A FULL keyboard is not 4 lines where you share numbers and letters!

    I doubt this will have a slide out keyboard? No need to bash me or anything, I just prefer a keyboard to an all touchscreen and swype that’s all..

    The funny thing, by the time this drops, just imagine what other awesome devices will be on T-Mo’s horizon! It always works that way.

    Why only 4.3″ after all that time, we should get no less than 4.5″ to 5″, or anable the phone on the galaxy tab

      its a cell phone not a flat screen tv

    • Orv

      Have u held the streak in ur hand and up to ur face ? I think a five inch phone is way to large to manage. Not only that but how would u carry it ? In ur pocket or on your hip neither seem to be that appealing.

  • Kevin

    Omg…i cant believe this. Rite once I get a mytouch 4g. And they come out with this…this sucks.

    @Bimmerz (I tried everything to reply to your post but it wouldn’t work. Hopefully this does.)

    I have no idea as to what could ever make you think of me when reading that article… HAAA!!! Just Kidding Bimmz. Thanks for the find.

    Yeah Aava makes some pretty sweet devices. That would be awesome. Meego runs Android apps. I like the dual OS idea there too. Kinda like dual booting. Get tired of one, switch to the other. I like both Android and Meego so that would be a really good device for me. MWC will bring some Meego goodies to me and I can’t wait! :D

    Again, Thanks Bimmerz. Will definitely keep an eye on that and some super sweet Meego tablets. The UI on the tablets is awesome. You’d probably like it. Youtube “Meego” and look at this video titled “Pre-Alpha MeeGo for tablets demo” to get a jidst of how it’s looking.

    • Bimmerz

      I am thinking that you should change your screen name to: Wilma “MeeGo” Flintstone! lol ;o) Yeah, this site has been acting up a little bit, as I saw this post from you this morning, and there was no Reply button there for me to reply to you – until now. Odd.

      Anyway, I think the multiple OS on a phone would be cool – just saw that one was working on a trio OS. Win7, Android and Win 6.5, and then saw the one I shared with you with Android and Meego. Haven’t heard of Aava before, but it looked interesting. In fact, until I started hanging out here in TmoNews, I hadn’t heard of “MeeGo” before – which was of course as a result of YOU! lol

      Will checkout the YouTube vid (per your suggestion) of MeeGo and it’s features and layout etc. :o)

    IMHO, T-mobile has yet to have a flag ship phone, besides, the G and N series phones. To my point, these are more regarded as Google phones. I have been a T-mobile customer for a very long time (6 years) and I am huge phone nerd. They need to give me something I can be proud of and get phone props from my friends and strangers LOL. Besides Im always bragging about T-Mo and their wonderful Customer Care

    My Behold 2 almost did this, I and peers were bedazzled by the hardware specs; especially the screen, but then I realized there was no Android Os upgrade and very little support from T-mobile or Samsung. This was a shock for such a high-end phone! The myTouch 3g blasted past this phone in functionality, especially in the apps compatibility department, a large part of this was due to phone popularity which trickles down to app developers.

    T-Mo needs to come out with a flagship phone with awesome hardware and provide amazing support for it. Basically do exactly what Sprint did with the Evo. Its really not that hard T-Mo. Copy your competitors to stay in the game. It’s literally the oldest trick in the business success handbook!

    Count me in..i want one so i can finally get an upgrade for my beloved N1. Pls just make it vanila android with HTC Sense as a widget or have the option to turn it on/off. Finally a device that can truely take advantage of the HSPA+ 4G speeds of Magenta. If the HTC Thunderbolt w/ just single core can beat some of the just announced dual cores in speed tests then u can just imagine what an HTC 1.2 Ghz Dual core will do..boy oh boy i can’t w8…every cell on my body is oscillating w/ excitement. Even tho my ideal screen size for a smart device wud be 4 inches…this device at 4.3 inches isn’t much of a deviation

    Please be the “Saga” or something similar. I’d love to see some Nexus One styling with capacitive buttons. I’m ready for a non querty version of the G2 that’thin and looks business savvy and mature!

    Forgive me if I am repeating anyone’s comment…

    I hope, hope, hope, that this rumor holds up. I love the G2, but this is what I have been waiting for. I remember hoping for the Glacier rumors to be something similar, and that ended up being the MT4G…Oh, crap. I just thought of something awful…what if this ends up being the next gen of MyTouch??? NOOOOOOO!!!!

    I so hope it is true. I would guess that T-Mobile got the idea from all of use that have turned the WM hd2 phone into a real phone. I hope it is true.

    Good mother fricking god…. Tmobile and their obvious disbelief for 4.3 inch androids is truely making me insane. And I swear, if they wait this long and the device turns out laggy, ugly, featureless, ui overlayed, etc. I might just punch a hole in my computer… They literally just need to look at their good ole palls Verizon and see how many devices this size they have planned to release this year alone… PEOPLE WANT THEM YOU OBLIVIOUS TMOBILE HIGHER-UPS!!

    • Nclax15

      Holy crap. While I’m waiting for some of the specs and pics, I might just sell my Vibrant in preparation for this beast. Hopefully I’m making the right assumption that it is coming. I’m on my heels for some pictures for sure though…:/

    Its about dam time!! at&t have a 4.3 sprint has one verizon has several, if tmobile can have an hd2 and hd7 which nobody wants crappy windows phones anymore why not just make a 4.3 android phone, and leave it alone and not make it another stupid mytouch phone. we all know everyone made their hd2 run android(myself included) get with it t-mobile big phones are the wave of the future. i have been with t-mobile for over 11 years now great service but common with the sub par phones already no wonder they are in 4th place, vibrant and vibrant 4g with no flash what is this the 90′s?? and they will charge 4 to 500 bucks for this, just go back to the razor if you want a phone with no flash get with it tmobile 4.3 android get fu&^% with it already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I’ve always hated that about TMobile…they always seem to lag behind with phones, but I’ve never had an issue with service. If they step their phone game up, I’ll be a happy customer for more years to come (My wife has had them for 10 years, I’ve had them for 5).
