HTC Ruby Specs Leaked, 4.3″ Of Dual-Core Android Goodness

While the HTC Ruby is a bit of a mystery device a ninja source of ours we’ve been able to gleam a little bit of intel surrounding the specs and eventual launch. First and foremost this is not a myTouch device but will launch with a set of impressive and sure to please specs. The HTC Ruby will pack a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with a 4.3″ qHD display complete with a dedicated camera and video button (separate buttons) for the 8 megapixel camera on the back and the 2 megapixel camera on the front. Last but not least we’ve got 1GB of RAM and Bluetooth 3.0 on board.

That’s all we’ve been able to discover but we’ve been assured this device is sure to please once it arrives later this year. Along with the Ruby specs we’re hearing confirmation of a late September launch for the Samsung Hercules though an exact date was unknown. Of course now this means you can have some fun picking out your future device!

    Ill say this will be the T-Mobile G3 when it’ll hit the stores

      I don’t think so based only on the codenames… Dream…Vision…Ruby? But heres hoping your right.

      • branden sibley

        actually the code name fits more in line with the mytouch line. Sapphire, emerald, and then ruby. i think david would agree

        • http://tmonews.com David

          I do agree, but we were told it isn’t a myTouch device and considering we’ve seen pics of a branded T-Mobile phone without the myTouch branding that’s a pretty big whatif.

    Gotta admit this is tmo’s best lineup since they started pushing android phones on 08, I’m concerned about the hercules though, we need an htc or samsung android phone with an nvidia tegra 2 processor and get some real action with better battery life, or at least some dual core with full A9 cores, A8 is cool, but its all about them A9s

  • nerdlust

    This is tight tmobile is really coming with it. Mytouch4g slide( hard to find dual core and keyboard) sensation, hercules now ruby… I’m so confused my cliq2 is working great but the raw power of dual core is tempting.

    • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

      Honestly I know the cliq2 is not super high end but its a  solid phone.  But then again I’m such a tech junkie I buy a new phone every 7 to 8 months, so who am I to persuade somebody away from something newer.

    to the people complaining that this is just like the Sensation with minor improvements and that T-Mobile shouldn’t release new/better phones so close to each other, and that our want of always having the latest and greatest is wrong, i respectfully disagree.. if it weren’t for the consumer’s materialistic behavior to have the latest and greatest, manufactures would have no incentive to try to 1-Up each other. if everyone was content with a resistive 3 inch screen with 240×400 resolution, a 620 MHz processor with 180 MB internal memory, a 1000 mAh battery, and Touchwiz 1.0, people would still be rocking the 3 year old Samsung Behold T919 like i still am despite the constant lag and occasional freezes and a manufacturer like Samsung would have no need to release something as awesome as the Galaxy S2. consumerism and competition brings innovation, and T-Mobile has always been a leader in bringing high end phones with variety. G1 = first android phone ever, G2 = first HSPA+ phone or really the first 4G phone ever, G2x = first dual core phone in the states. when AT&T acquires T-Mobile it will be a sad day for all of us

      G2x came after the Atrix which is dual core.

      • Anonymous

        Sorry, I have to be technical. The first dual core phone released was the LG optimus 2x which was released overseas. Then the attrix was released here in the states. Then tmobile released the g2x (the optimus 2x just a stock version) in the states. Good job Chris.

        • Anonymous

          Yes which is what I was going on since he said first in the states which it clearly was not. I was not saying it was first dual core because it wasn’t but was here in the states.

        • Chrisangel13

          i stand corrected, the G2x was not the first dual core phone in the states. the rest of my argument holds true though. I’m just excited to see what the G3 brings to the table.

        • bmg314

          Just to clarify, the G2 was the first 4G phone on Tmo, not the first in the states… Which is probably what u meant. 0_o

        • Chrisangel13

          Sprint’s WiMax network at the time of the release of the Evo 4G and the G2 wasn’t even close to being as fast as T-Mobile’s HSPA+ so in my opinion it wasn’t really “4G”. however, in 1 or 2 years Sprint will overtake T-Mobile in terms of speed simply because there is a limit to how much HSPA+ can grow considering the fact that it only builds upon T-Mobile’s existing 3G network, meanwhile WiMax will become LTE which many consider the next generation 4G standard

        • bmg314

          I agree wimax is slow… however the ITU stated that both wimax and HSPA+ are 4G, so our opinions on what is or isn’t 4G are irrelevant. The Evo 4G was first…BUT I’m still rockin my G2 with cm7 and lovin it anyway XD.

    I want a 4″ or 4.3″ inch screen with a keyboard..It would be nice to play emulator games with a keyboard makes them much more pleasing.

  • Uglyanyways

    Stock vs manufacturer updates debates are a failure.  T-Mobile takes forever to post updates to their stock Android devices.  Stock UI’s are ugly anyways.  

  • Abtexas83

    I may be wrong but You can kinda make out the upper back of the phone in the reflection on the bottom of the screen. Seems it may be to thick and the camera seems very distinct. Maybe a tmo version of the 3D.. but better specs…… Screw it I love the sensation and I would rather spend my time investing in a sweet tablet. Plus next spring will be upon us in no time and the cores will just keep multiplying.

    Samsung Hercules all day. I got a sensation and Im a little disappointed. I love HTC, but I’m going Samsung for a little bit. I’ll be back tho HTC!

  • Gokusupasaiyan

    I don’t understand why everybody is so excited about the nexus prime. It’s not going to be quad core for sure. It’ll be dual core with vanilla android. Go pick up the G2X!

      Even after the GB update, the G2x is buggy as all hell. Wifi still doesn’t work right and phone shuts off randomly. 

      • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

        I thought I was the only one. I’m so p*ssed w/ this thing. Worst purchase I’ve ever made. I keep tryna get it right w/ T-Mobile devices & apparently I always pick the wrong ones. I didn’t want to get a new phone months later after I purchased one originally, but at this point I can’t deal w/ this anymore.

    everytime i delay my upgrade  for the next “great” smartphone, something better is right around the corner. if these ruby specs come out to be real, hercules will have a run for its money. or maybe just keep delaying and nexus3 it is

    This isn’t a Sensation update, nor is the “Hercules” a Galaxy update.  These are the first of the 42 MBps data smartphones.  That alone makes them a different devices.

    Galaxy S II is a more advanced smartphone with a 4.3-inch display, dual core processor, 1GB RAM and 8MP camera in the rear panel. The device runs on Andorid 2.3 Gingerbread. According to reports, AT&T is going to get a sliding QWERTY model of Galaxy S II. With the same technical specifications and features, the device will have a slide-out physical keypad. The AT&T Galaxy S II model is named Within. Meanwhile, Verizon Wireless will evidently get a 4G LTE version called Celox. The device will have a larger 4.5-inch display, 1.5 GHz dual core, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. T-Mobile and Sprint Nextel will also have different versions of Galaxy S II.

      How is that considered more advanced if it’s the exact same specs listed in the article?

    If i just got a sensation 4g with a 2 year contract 2 days ago can I return the phone and get my money back? And use it towards this phone at full price without adding 2 more years to my contract?

      Ask T-Mobile. This is not customer support.

        I paid 200 for the sensation on a 2 year contract with 2 lines but only got one phone and they said I only have like o forgot how much days to get a discounted phone .. so if I return it will can I get a different phone, I’m in California..so that would mean I only have 30 days, and the ruby wouldt be out by then so I couldn’t do it, right?

          Well, you could always return it and wait for the Ruby… 

          Or you could return it, get something else, return that, get something else and repeat until the Ruby came out…

          I’ve flirted with the idea of picking it up, but I keep hearing bad things about it. (The Sensation) Heh, I kind of like full keyboard phones anyway, so I guess I’ll just keep holding on to my trusty G2 for a while longer.

      Yes you can as long as you have all of your paper work. But you may have to pay a $50 restocking fee. Depending on the state u live in tmobile gives 14 days to return or exchange a phone california gets 30.

    • http://twitter.com/KARMA773 Karma

      becareful, they might not reserve your contract if you return the phone. thats what they did to me, they  said yes we received your phone, but wont reverse contract back to what it was  out of contract beofre i upgraded for new phone, secondly, if you want a another phone, you can upgrade at store, later they made it  upgradable online.

        Wow, that’s lame. Did you escalate? I don’t see how T-Mobile could justify holding you to a contract after you returned the equipment…
