HTC Pyramid Reappears In The Wild, Still No Word From T-Mobile

We’re still waiting for T-Mobile to give the official nod to the upcoming HTC Pyramid, until then we’ll continue to make do with the leaked shots. This time we’re seeing more of the Pyramid in the wild courtesy of XDA-Developers.com. As it stands, the specs acquired by the individual (s) over at XDA differ from our own. The XDA post states the Pyramid will come with a 960 x 540 qHD screen whereas our own intel pointed to a 800 x 400 display. So in regards to the screen we’re hoping the XDA intel is accurate. On the flip side, XDA states the Pyramid will come with Android 2.3.2 and our intel says the Pyramid will in fact come with Android 2.4. So let’s hope our ninjas are right on that front.

On the agreement side, both XDA and our intel says the Pyramid runs HTC’s Sense 3.0, has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 768 MB of Ram and an 8 megapixel camera. One thing is for sure, we’re looking at T-Mobile’s first 4.3″ Android device and it’s shaping up to be quite the powerhouse. All signs still point to a June launch from what we are hearing. While we’re disappointed T-Mobile didn’t mention anything about the Pyramid at CTIA, we’re willing to overlook that if they drop this thing right on schedule.

    This looks awesome. It makes sense they wouldn’t announce this at the same time as the G2x since it seems to out spec it in every fashion. I’d really like to know how these dual cores compare. snapdragon vs tegra2 vs omap…from what I’ve ready omap seems to be the best, followed by tegra, then the snapdragon, but we’ll have to see.

    still a little upset that it’s sense but i can learn to live with that. i use launcherpro for my homescreen anyway.

    also still a chance that this could be the next nexus device as well considering the N1 had a sense variant as well.

    honestly though, biggest thing i want is for it to support t-mo and AT&T HSPA+ bands just incase that all goes down.

      If this was a nexus device then there wouldnt be Sense on it. It would be pure Android.

          So you answered your own question. This phone will no doubt come to the United States. I have a T-Mobile G2, which also happens to be the Desire Z in Europe. Anyways even if you look at the carriers as they stand – Verizon with the Thunderbolt, ATT with the Inspire – and sprint with the Evo (outdated but they already announced the 3d anyways) T-mobile is the only one left hanging.

          We’re long past due and you guys are right it may come to us the same way the HD2 did and the Desire Z did( among other phones probably). We shall see soon enough hopefully.

    Dang that phone is sexy:) sort of looks like the nexus one from the back. Please T-Mobile US give us this phone I so want it.

    P.S. I heard from an inside source that the reason they (T-Mo) hasn’t said nothing about this phone yet is because it looks like its scheduled for a Q4 2011 release and 2.4 is pre loaded as well :) so keep y’all fingers crossed!

  • whosaidwhat

    What the heck is that on the 4th screen (never used sense). Look hideous (reminds me of Windows 98). That’s not the app draw, is it?

    The hardware itself looks nice but I wish it had stock android. I’m sure Cyanogen will be all over this as soon as it drops.

    David, I think 2.4 is just another version of Gingerbread and not ice cream.

    I was looking forward to the ever-elusive HTC Pyramid, and then there was that whole AT&T/T-Mobile fiasco.

    I’m hoping that this is released as the HTC Box (or Cube, Rectangle, Rhomboid) on Verizon, but I won’t be holding my breath.

  • V-Mobile

    I seem to be in the minority-if not the only one–but I don’t care about super specs or pumping them up.
    I’m sure people will have a fit about me saying that but I don’t really care.
    Whatever comes internally with the phone, if it comes at all, will be more than adequate for me.
    I respect the tech and how it’s advancing but I don’t need an AI quite yet.

    What I am a stickler about is the look/design of a phone–the hardware.
    I’m the same way with cars. I don’t care what’s under the hood–
    if I don’t like how it looks, I’m going to be much less interested in getting behind the wheel.

    When I read these blogs, I mainly see are tons of comments about rooting and twisting and shaking the specs.
    It’s like the phone could be hot pink and no one would care–as long as it’s got an FFC or can rooted.
    I keep waiting for someone to say something at least close to what I’m thinking and it never happens.
    I really liked the HD2 design except for the the buttons on the front.
    And the HD7 lost me with those unattractive grills
    and the back of it–it reminds me of an old suitcase
    .
    I hate the silver on the Pyramid. I want the phone-or any one I get to be ALL black–no silver or grey bezel.
    I like the Incedible/S’s back-I even like the mini-wildfire or Aria hardware–without the trackpad or ball.
    I would see them and and ask why can”t this be a “normal” 4.3 on T-Mobile.
    Oh well-just thought I’d vent.
    I may be one that has to go elsewhere anyway-as this does’t seem to be coming anytime soon.
    I’m tired of waiting.
    I’ve been watching, fingers crossed, and hoping since early last year
    for us to get a Desire HD design but it seems not–or not really for me.
    Something sleek, modern and black.

  • http://profiles.google.com/alephxero Adam Carson

    If it’s running Sense I don’t see it running 2.4 right away. Generally it takes manufacturers some time to adapt their custom skins onto newer versions of Android, so it seems likely that for the time being these devices would be on current Gingerbread builds. I guess it’s possible if the phone won’t be released for another few months that it might launch with 2.4, but I strongly doubt any model you see in the wild now would have it.

  • Anonymous

    I left T–Mobile, was with them for a very long time but just could not give them any more of my $$. I bought 4 of their best devices at full price and they all will be just paper weights. That is why I am pissed off. They had no answers when I called and talked to customer assis. the other day, they said simply it was just too bad,. I said it was too bad because I was leaving and that is what I did, bought the Thunderbolt, live in the LTE area and my speeds are sick. I am happy I am with a carrier that has a future network with great speeds and service. My plan is about $15.00 more a month, allot less if you figure in all the phones I got stuck with. I really enjoyed being a T-Mobile customer, I always fired back at other people who thru insults. I enjoyed being able to change sim cards whenever I wanted to change phones but using my new Thunderbolt is taking away all those problems. Good Luck to all who stay with T-Mobile, I will never be happy with AT&T’s data caps that just scream out overage chargers.

    • Ondawire

      Vinny try doing two things at once with your new verizon phones. sorry i work for verizon but would never use their service due to its limited capabilities. try talking to your girlfriend and finding that restaurant on your phone at the same time. Sorry, but you will have to call her back if you do.

      • Markanon

        I think the inability to do simultaneous voice and data only applies to Verizon 3G… not LTE. So, if you have a Thunderbolt, like vinnyj, and you live in an LTE area, then you can do both.

    • Anonymous

      I’ve also used the Thunderbolt, and it isnt anything to write home about. There are some dumb design flaws on it that you wouldnt expect from an HTC phone, like not being able to charge your phone with the kickstand deployed. The phone is not really fast, its still running a 1Ghz Snapdragon, which given all the stuff they loaded into the phone, it couldve used a faster chip. If you’re going to go 1Ghz, your device better be stock. Sense really isnt so great looking, but more to the point, Verizon has already stated they will cap out data plans this Summer. So you ran away from tmobile and went to a carrier that has said they will certainly data cap customers, because you were worried AT&T would impose a data cap? your phones are not bricks, you rely on a customer care rep to know all the intricacies of a corporate acquisition? Did you forget they are still entry level employees? Do your research, it will be years before they decommission t-mobiles HSPA+ bands, and even when they do you will have be due/past due an upgrade anyway, who keeps their phone for 2 years? I’m sure LTE is fast as I have demoed the new Mi-Fi devices, but i am not sold on the performance staying the same once a respectable number of people are using the network. Verizon charges for VVM, who does that? They’re the priciest carrier and still nickel and dime customers. good luck and I hope you are happy with your decision, but your information is false.

      Verizon also definitely throttles your speed.

          You wouldn’t be on AT&T you would be on T-Mobile the only difference is some German company won’t own them it’ll be AT&T. They say merger but in reality the German company is tired of owning T-Mobile and AT&T needs them to provide for 95% of Americans. Don’t worry about the AT&T thing everything will be fine. And even if AT&T doesn’t get T-Mobile my understanding is T-Mobile is getting 3 million big ones from AT&T if the FCC and others decide to not approve it.

          Multiply that 3 million times 1000 and you got the correct amount T-Mo is going to receive from ATT if the mergers falls apart.

    Still leaning towards the LG2X. Vanilla android and unlocked bootloader. @kmobs (who is a developer for Cyanogenmod) said that if you think Motorola bootlockers are bad, you won’t like the upcoming HTC devices. That’s not a good sign for me. With the custom Touch Wiz on the Sammy GS2 and this Sense 3.0 on the Pyramid, I just prefer the stock build on the LG2X. Performance should be comparable and .3″ isn’t a deal breaker for me so I still like the LG2X. Love HTC phones but Sense UI and locking the bootloader just rubs me the wrong way.

          Once you buy one phone off contract, it becomes very easy to buy any phone you want. Reason being you can sell that phone to someone for a nice hefty sum, therefore getting about 70% of your next phone purchase price. Less than the 199 on contract price, even.

          Rinse and repeat.

    Looking nice there Pyramid. Typical Tmo about the info though.

    Tmobile: Show them pictures but don’t give them any info on a release date. Make em wait. That’ll build up hype.

    (3 months later, every other carrier has went 3D with Holographic images and Wifi Coffee Makers)

  • Jazzmanmonty

    768mb ram is a joke! the standard should be one gb these days..just another phone with features that’ll be obsolete by fall…ya it’s dual core, but nothing else feature wise that sticks out. 4.3″ screen w/android? big deal..my HD2 has that with gingerbread 2.3.3. this phone is nothing to even be gossiping about like everyone has made a big deal of for the past months. come on ppl! if ur really excited about this phone, i might as well be excited that a man landed on the moon (Jim Carrey-dumb and dumber!) come on people lets push for something awesome from tmobile and get excited about that!

      REALLY? How many phones have 1gb memory? The Atrix is all that comes to me and the Atrix is a moto POS. The much heralded G2x “only” has 512 mb ram

      • Jazzmanmonty

        i’m looking at the fact that i’m gonna be stuck with this phone for about 18 months minimum. i’m not one to go waste money every two months when a new phone comes out like others here.. i’m thinking about when i got my G1, and how by the time 2 years hit it was so obsolete. hell these specs aren’t THAT much better than on my hd2 running android..so whats the sell-me-gimmick to get me to get any of these new phones? dual core?! all apps run fine on the hd2 processor. nothing big here as far as this release. 14.4mbps 4g? realistically i barely break 5 mbps on the hd2 with 4g so i don’t see the need for any of these new gimmicky phones…too many of you fall in to this trap of its new, so it must be better.

        • http://www.facebook.com/iamm0ses Nick Kane

          What’s gimmicky about drastically better performance? The G2X gets better Quadrant scores than a G2 clocked at 1.9ghz.

          I think your exaggerating, I can understand the issue you may have with the ram not being 1GB, which is no way a standard yet. By the time this comes out it may only be two or three on the market, and who knows this may have 1GB of ram. At one point it was debated rather it was dual.core or not. I’m still waiting on the official word from T-Mobile to even consider getting this phone. Personally I like the design because it doesn’t look like the other 4.3″ HTC phones. Besides I’m sure if T-Mobile gets it they’re going to make some design modifications like every other carrier does to their phones.

          Yes, I didn’t say if it was a good or bad decision. Personally I can’t comment on espresso because I never used it that much, and when I did I didn’t see why it had so many complaints. But if you’re going to point out espresso as a flaw, point out how the made the G2 stock when it had sense and the G2X stock when it had the LG skin.

        • Jazzmanmonty

          The point i’m trying to make is that this big deal about 4g right now isn’t as big as most people make it. reason? because unless ur standing right under the antenna you are very rarely going get DL speeds close to or above 7mbps. now why would you care that a new 4g device has a connection speed of 14.4 or greater? for the FUTURE, because you will probably use a phone like this for a year or two and when that speed is available, you want to have access to those speeds. Same goes for the RAM issue. Right now like i said, my hd2 w/android has no problem running any app, no video latency issues with youtube, etc. its running 2.3.3 flawlessly. my contract expired after i had my G1 for two years. i saw how that technology was obsolete after two years. And i’m sure my HD2 will be obsolete when it reaches its two year old age. So if we are going to purchase a new phone like this (say it comes out june/july) compare the improvements from a phone like the HD2. a 25% RAM increase and dual core, also possible a screen thats may have a better resolution but unknown? oh and the camera is 8mp…well we have debated about 8mp vs 5mp enough already. But the whole moral of this is that we are waiting for a phone to come out that when will be released will be almost 1.5 years newer than an hd2, and there isn’t much advancements. and enough about quadrant, those scores don’t mean much.. if they do i’m hitting 2900′s on hd2. so the only argument i’ve heard so far is that its super fast. ya super fast opening and closing my app drawer? it’ll load an app 2 seconds faster? big deal. if a phone is going to be released this summer thats supposed to have hot new features and technology, that is supposed to last two years, it should have the specs to back it up.

          Your phone isn’t even a 4G phone, so how can you comment on 4G being a big deal or not?

        • Jazzmanmonty

          because it is capable of hsdpa up to 7.2 mbps, so if this device isn’t hitting peak download speeds, neither will a device that is capable of 22mpbs. i compared speed tests on my phone and on a mytouch 4g. both peaked a little around 5mbps dl during my tests. so until tmo upgrades its networks nationwide to attain these speeds, there’s no difference in your dl speeds with either device (unless you live in a few select cities with faster networks already available..but not CHICAGO!)

        • my2cents

          that’s not how things work. hspa+ 14, 21, 42 on so forth have the ability to access more bandwidth. So you’re mytouch 4G at 14.4 cannot access the kind of bandwidth that the Galaxy 4g can at 21. That’s why when MSNBC did there side by side test of the mytouch 4G vs the Galaxy 4g, the galaxy 4g was much faster even though both phones did not reach the max of even 14.4. You’ll see the same difference once 42 launches.

          So i’m sorry but your wrong if you think that your 7.2 3g phone will reach the same speeds.

        • Jazzmanmonty

          it doesn’t matter if i get the same top speed on speed test on my phone vs. a 4g phone as long as the DL speed is similar and not exceeding 7.2 which i haven’t seen on any device i tested in chicago yet. maybe if you’re in vegas, new york, or orlando..until then all the 4g hyped phones mean nothing. and the galaxy may have had faster speeds as far as browsing or whatnot due to its better processor. ya their both 1ghz, but hummingbird A8 is better than snapdragon.

        • my 2 cents

          Sorry Fail again. The Vibrant, and Galaxy S 4G have the same processor. Yet the Galaxy S 4G has significantly faster speeds when connecting by HSPA+.

          Thinking about HSPA+ 21, 42, 84 and so forth can be thought of how cable/dsl etc can offer you different levels of speed for a price. There using the same pipe to deliver the speed, but they are able to limit it. In the case of HSPA+ the combination of software at the site plus the purchase of additional bandwidth from the carrier, and hardware to your device equals greater speed.

          The galaxy S 4G has tested above 7.2 in the real world so wrong again. The point is depending on the device, if it has 14.4, 21, or 42 capability it can access more bandwidth than your 7.2 phone period. This has been tested and confirmed.

          http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41485079/ns/technology_and_science-wireless/

          This is why in this test of testing the mytouch 4g and galaxy s 4g in the same location produced dramatically different results. The galaxy S 4G averaged above the magic 7.2 that you say 4G cannot currently exceed. So if you’d like to stay on 7.2 good do that. If you live in an area where the backhaul for hspa+ is not complete.. yeah sorry maybe sucks to be you.

          But for those of us who live in area’s where HSPA+ is strong with the backhaul to go with it go ahead and buy your 4G device. Don’t be swayed by ramblings of people who don’t know what they are talking about.

          Dude just stop. You obviously don’t know as much as you like to think you do…

        • my 2 cents

          I’m confused. The HD2 is not a 4G phone. So you would be at 7.2 not 14.4. ?????

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Simon-Yu/100000989859895 Simon Yu

          HD2 has no 4G, no not all apps run fine on the HD2′s processor.. it’s growing old quite quick.. the 1st Gen Snapdragon is the slowest of the 1Ghz Processors, and eventually it will be left behind quicker than a dual-core the purpose of getting the best specs is to be ahead and up to date as long as possible with the performance available because of the specs.

      1 gig of ram should be standard? In what world? Phones are just now starting to utilize that much memory, and the Atrix is the only one I know of that’s available. June will be here in only a couple months. Those specs are still advanced. How much more can you realistically look for in a phone coming out now? Emphasis on realistically.

    • Chris

      1 GB standard? Are you saying that since we have 2 TB Hard drives now for computers that every computer should have 2TB? you’re logic is fail. lol. 1GB is something cool to have, not a standard.

  • Ilyas_k15

    looks sexy, can’t decide between this, g2x, or optimus 3d

  • Hxsilva

    If you look on the bottom of the glass the relection seems to bubble up, is the glass curved like the nexus s?

    • Spooln3

      I would take a pretty good guess and say that what you are seeing is the plastic cover screen shield that is still on the phone, not the actual glass that is a part of the phone itself.

  • Androidluvr

    All I can say is booooorrrrriiiinnnng and UUUUUUUUGLYYY. Nothing new as one poster said. This will be outdated by the time it hits the shelves. Old design just like all the HTC phones, less than expected memory and absolutely nothing new about it.

    • Sundevilalum1994

      Moooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrooooooooonnnnnn. Can you say dumba**. This is going to be the best phone on the market. Icrap5 can’t even match this. I think it is sexy also.

        As much as I like Android, I gotta call BS on your comment. The iPhone 5 is going to blow this thing out of the water. The new A5 chipset will be much more powerful than this Snapdragon chipset. Of course the iPhone 5 isn’t here yet, but neither is the Pyramid. Me though, I am going to get the G2X.

    • Anonymous

      I pressed like by accident. So anyway, The update to the EVO, one of the best Android phones for quite some time, the EVO3D, will have basically the same specs. So you’re saying a qHD screen, Sense 3.0, and a 1.2GHz dual core processor is nothing new? I truly would like to know what you look for in a phone, or just what phone you’re currently using. And what’s ugly about it? How many different ways can you design a touchscreen phone? Should it have flames and cross bones?

    • whosaidwhat

      There’s nothing boring about this phone. T-Mobile needs this phone. G2X, Pyramid, SGS2 and maybe one other high end phone for this year will earn them a couple of new customers.

      The Battery size is actually 1520mAh

    It’s all about the G2x for me. I hope this phone sells well and pleases those crying for a “4.3″ Android Super Phone” (I hate that term by the way), but honestly in my opinion, the design of this phone is pretty crappy, the two tones make it look cheap, i hate that its rounded instead of square like the Desire HD’s. Stock is always better and I would never bother flashing a ROM if it just came stock. Also as stated in other posts, I’m hearing the Tegra is better than the Snapdragon Dual Core.

    LG Star/LG Optimus 2X/LG G2x FTW!!!

    • Anonymous

      Where are you getting your information about Tegra CPU’s being better than the 8xx0 series of Snapdragons ?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Simon-Yu/100000989859895 Simon Yu

        Tegra’s actually are better due to the Architecture, that’s why the Snapdragons are overclocked to 1.2Ghz to be on par with the Tegras.. also Tegras manage minimum power sap while not in use.. which is why the G2x has something around 400 hours standby I believe.

      How is the design crappy? Rounded corners are supposed to give a device a smaller sleeker feel. Two tones make it look cheap? Does an almost entirely metal back give it a cheaper look than that Cheap thin metal strip on the G2x?

      Sorry I’m not against the G2x it’s just.. both are great and you are entitled to your opinion.

      It’s not just people crying for a 4.3 inch Superphone on T Mobile, HTC is kind of a big deal.. almost guaranteed to have the support of the dev community and HTC gives updates.

    This phone is going to be a beast. I wish it were coming to Verizon with a 4G radio, but I’m glad T-Mobile is getting a killer phone like this. They were the original carrier to support Android, so they should have a flagship device like the Pyramid.

      How does it compare to the Thunderbolt? Since the Thunder is out already, and this is yet to be announced. They don’t seem to be very different to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/CeeGee-Borela/100000183782060 CeeGee Borela

    LG G2X or LG Oprimus 3G(G3D if they do get it to tmobile)

      Unfortunately, It looks like at&t will be getting the Optimus 3D. At&t-mobile may exist in over another year, but everything will be “outdated” by then …
