First Press Photo For HTC Ruby Discovered

We’ve already discovered the HTC Ruby in the wild a few times so the first press shot uncovered by the folks at PocketNow won’t provide any new information. Still, it’s the first press image although without T-Mobile branding we’re still inclined to think the T-Mobile will arrive with the white shell.

The Ruby and it’s 4.3″ qHD display, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel with dedicated camera and video record buttons are likely to put this phone in neck and neck competition for your dollars against the Samsung Galaxy S II. We’re still shooting for an October 19th or October 26th launch with the latest evidence pointing toward the 26th. We’ve have heard the possibility that date has been moved up a week but with nothing concrete we’re just saying circling both weeks on our calendars.

    This picture looks a little too round in person it looks like a cross between the sensation and mytouch 4g with a white and silver back

    It looks alright but ascetically I think the Sensation looks better, specs aside of course.

      I am with you.. The Sensation looks great, but is already outdated by the Sensation II or whatever they are calling it.  Wish T-Mo would get it instead of this..

    Still can’t believe it I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://jmb.tw/52bf

  • The Shick

    This phone looks dope! Im currently using the LG G2x (which sucks), so I can’t wait for this phone.

  • Ilyas_k15

    I really hope some new details will be revealed soon, I want to know how it will perform next to GSII, I can’t decide which one of the the two I should get. If I’m getting a phone for the next 2 years, it sure as hell better be the best one around. I really like the higher resolution qHD screen, but we all know that Super AMOLED Plus is pretty awesome too. Also, I really like the fact that this one has a physical camera (and video) button(s), but the audio quality of camcorders on HTC phones is awful. The rest is pretty much the same, or at least it’s less important to me, since there are no other vastly different factors to consider.

  • Im1BudWiser

    Personally, I think HTC puts out too many phones and only makes minor changes to set it apart from the last….On top of that design wise, they all favor previous models as well. The sensation was a nice step outside of the box….They should follow that path….

  • The Architect(of the matrix)

    I think this will be my next phone.. its going to be tough to pass on samoled+, but I think the ruby will be a better fit for me..

    htc made vast improvements in their camera dept, now with the acquisition (majority share) of beats audio, hopefully they improved their speakers as well..

    If the battery size is atleast 1750mah, I’m all in..

  • Cyclotourist

    I’m planning on upgrading from my G2 to the Ruby.  I want the bigger screen (size & pixels), and I don’t use the keyboard on my G2 (I don’t like it).  Also I’m hoping the dual core will help performance of a few things.

  • Mikamblamwitch

    this is definately the next mytouch

    • Danny Perez

      Definitely, check out the speaker grill, it’s the same shape and design as the mytouch 4g

      • MIami

        OMG, we have already been through this.  It is not a myTouch

        • 19fonzy

          it is a Mytouch Because All The Mytouch phones Are Named after a certain gem “Htc Saphire”= Mytouch 3g !!!

        • http://tmonews.com David

          Ah, but Espresso was the myTouch 4G!

        • Anonymous

          Nope, it was Emerald.  As in Project Emerald…. Remember?

    I might get it but still waiting for the specs and price

  • Anonymous

    I don’t think there’s anything particularly compelling about this handset. To be honest, I’m not seeing anything compelling about T-Mobile’s handsets these days period.

  • FtKnoxTMO

    I sure would like to see the SGSII and this side by side “Live”.  I have been waiting to upgrade since May waiting to see if the iPhone 5 was going to make an appearance on TMO.  Since that’s been answered, looks like a Sammy or HTC for Halloween this year.

  • Auser72

    A phone for the Grown and Sexy!! It also has a upscale look that will appeal to business types too.

    cant wait for a dogfight between this and GSII. Been sitting on an upgrade for my mt3g.  as someone said earlier, if i’m locking back in for 2 more years with t-mobile/ att, I want the best phone available to me.
     

    • Nam2339

      Same here, still got my mt3g and am stoked about upgrading on oct. 14th. But the question is just that, get the sgs2 right when I can, or be patient another two weeks to see what htc has to offer. Right now the ruby looks more… current, but I’ll have to wait for the sgs2 vs ruby to make my decision!

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

        Seeing as both the devices are pretty neck and neck now, (With the processors being the same no?, but I think the Ruby’s will be at 1.2Ghz?) it’s down to UI, build quality/design, and display tech.

      • FtKnoxTMO

        Wow, I still have not upgraded from my MT3G…still lot’s of us.  I did have to buy a used MT4G on eBay, since my 3G is too slow and laggy to even make a simple phone call.  With both at 1.5 Ghz Dual Core CPU’s, should not have any lag, both with 1 GB of ram; 8 MP camera, going to be a great Dog Fight between these two.

    :( hope this is a phone featuring Beats by Dre.

    I thought it would be red…htc ruby…

  • TMOTECH

    It is a sensation with more ram. Same phone. Who cares.It is time for someone to come out with something new. The last 5 phones put out there are basically the same thing. 

  • Spardamx6

    I have to agree with cellularcrazy09, makes perfect sense to come out with a red shell. Could possibly boost sales because of making the phone a bit more unique.
