HTC Ruby Specs Confirmed Yet Again, October 26th Still Rumored Launch Date

Conversations with our ninja’s are always enlightening especially when the topics turn to an as of yet unreleased phone that is looking to really turn the T-Mobile lineup inside out. That’s right we’re talking about the HTC Ruby and it’s 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage running Android 2.3.4. Our sources are confident that this phone is a follow up to the HTC Sensation 4G as it has no myTouch branding on the preproduction units and “fits” most HTC Sensation 4G cases.

The 8 megapixel camera on the back combines with the 2 megapixel camera on the front to provide a superb camera experience just like the one that is found on the myTouch 4G Slide. The very same presets as the 4G Slide camera can be found on the HTC Ruby along with the dedicated camera button and dedicated video button. I have to say the Macro effects on this device are pretty sweet.

Fortunately all of these specs line up with our earlier reports regarding the HTC Ruby aka Amaze 4G and we’re still not seeing any indication that this device is a part of the myTouch lineup of phones. However, we’ve been warned that the units currently in the hands of testers are preproduction units and everything is subject to change.

We’re still confident that the October 26th rumored launch date is on track but we’d love to be 100% completely wrong on this and see this phone launch anytime before that. Anytime at all, even October 25th would be better.

    So is it just a single 1.5 GHz processor, or is it dual core?

    Both ways, this phone would be sweet to have…

        I’m almost certain its dual core, also like the article said, its a follow up to the Sensation 4G so I can’t see a downgrade in the specs

        you’re wrong, Ruby will have a 1.5 Ghz dual-core.

    seems odd that it would be a “follow up” if ts a single core, either way its a solid phone T-Mobile has the best line up. Im excited about the Hercules for my wife and the Nexus Prime for me.

    #DEAD so I spend my money to have the latest and greatest HTC device and then the same one comes out with better specs in the matter of a few months. Smh… I’m so done with HTC after this. Kinda hurts my feelings, lmao! I guess I will be toting an iPhone 5 soon. :(

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JDEO25YQVMCZVH3GMSVVKSKK3M Suhail

      lol @ being butthurt about HTC releasing phones. there will always be a newer/faster/lighter/better phone out every 3 months. deal with it.

      • http://www.twitter.com/aemr Andre’ MindYoBusiness

        Lmao, Ikr… I love my HTC, my favorite brand!

        But…. at least with an iPhone you can keep your phone and know you’re good for a solid year. And I’m sure the iPhone 5 should have everything I want. Idk… I’m trying to just keep a solid phone, instead of upgrading and switching and trading, etc.

          Whycant you just keep the sensation for a year?

        • http://www.twitter.com/aemr Andre’ MindYoBusiness

          Because I’m on of those naive tech geeks who are sucked into having the latest and greatest and I find it hard to settle. I do love my sensation tho. I had literally craved this phone, I researched everyday until it released. Haha! But idk, I had always said if the iPhone had bigger screen, better camera (which is already really good), dual cores, and was with a carrier that had unlimited data plans (Sprint or T-Mobile) then I’d get it. So I guess this is a sign, lmao!

          Regardless of what you buy there will be a phone with better specs a month later.  Will having this phone make much of a difference to you?
          HSPA+ at 42mbps instead of 14mbps…but I’ve never once hit 14 on my Sensation anyway.
          256MB more RAM…nice for sure but if you have a good Custom ROM 768 fares really well!
          16GB internal is definitely a plus but since all my music is on Google Music I still have 10GB of my SD free.
          2MP FFC…Do you really video chat enough for this to be a deal breaker?
          1.5Ghz instead of 1.2Ghz…it’s the same exact chip and rooted I can currently clock my Sensation at 1.7Ghz
          Beats audio would be nice but the sound on the Sensation is nice nonetheless.

          All in all very incremental upgrades.  I think it’s great that HTC puts out better phones every couple of months, rather than waiting a year and being behind the curve every time.

    very nice phone this and galaxys2 but oct 2011 is way too long to wait,  on october 2011, there will be galaxys3, order from europe or asia, iphone 5 and mroe new device to choose.

    thats why you get a special phone, like the sidekick, which is a separate brand that doesnt have any successors…(yet) even though other phones may be better, no sidekick will be better :)

    Everyone shut the f up about the nexus prime! These are great phones too ya know. Making it sound like your part of an elite club for douchebags

    From a salse perspective, I still dont understand this phone. What is the point of a follow-up so soon unless the Sensation is mere weeks away from End of Life or this phone does not run Sense.

    A new Tmobile (Authorized Dealer) store is opening up tomorrow in my small town. Woot woot!

      Can’t figure out where the Ruby would fit in either. But options are always good!!!!!!!!

  • Ilyas_k15

    Sounds superb, but HTC camcorders have awful sound quality. That is the only downside to this badass device, let’s see how it compares to Samsung Hercules and Nexus Prime

  • Jacostamusic

    But, why white….I hate white phones!

  • Flashy4bb

    i see already that this phone will be good for me after the nexus one. i’ve tried the sensation for a week but the ruby aka amaze 4G will be a wonderful replacement unless i want to steak with a google nexus where the prime would take over.

      Considering the announcement of two new mid-range MyTouch phones made by LG, I’d say your buddy was misinformed.

    You mentioned a 1.5 Ghz processor. The Sensation (the product this will most likely replace) run a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor. I’m sure you meant to say 1.5 Ghz dual-core. I like the rumored specs however 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, however I wish T-mobile would just wait for the Ice Cream Sandwich update until they release this phone. Honestly the Sensation was what only released in June. The Sensation may end up having a shorter life than the G2 (8 months) which is sad for such a deserving and capable phone.

    The 1 Gig internal memory for the Sensation is a Sensational FLOP! What a boneheaded decision. Any REAL smartphone user would run away! The fact that they are giving this new phone 16Gigs is a remarkable admission to the error of their ways.

    The Sensation has great hardware but the lack of ram and internal memory was a real dumb ass move. During the construction of this phone we are talking about just a few bucks more to make it a real bad ass phone. Ram and internal memory can make or brake a device, the lack of both crippled the Sensation, I know I own one and if I wasn’t so damn stupid to assume that the Sensation with all the hype it was getting, I thought it would have at least 8 mb or internal memory considering it was shipping with Sense 3.0. Sense is a memory killer and to give a hyped up phone just about non is assinine. As I said the Sensation’s hardware is great, the internal memory and ram is a killer. Anyone looking for a Sensation at a good price???? I’m using my Nexus One rooted and running Cyanogenmod.
