HTC Raider 4G returns from Holiday with 1.5GHz dual

Not too far back a prototype of the HTC Holiday appeared on Craigslist. Shortly after, a very similar phone was handled and tested on AT&TĎs nascent LTE network. Now the phone has gotten official on the Korean HTC website as the HTC Raider 4G.

The specs are slightly improved over what had been previously reported. Instead of a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the Raider 4G has been bumped to 1.5GHz. Itís also got 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 8 megapixel wide-angle rear facing camera with dual LED flash and 1.3 megapixel front camera, and LTE support with uploads up to 50Mbps and downloads pushing twice that rate. The usual array of sensors is onboard, too: accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and GPS.

While its screen isnít quite as large as the unit on the HTC Titan or Runnymede, the Raider 4Gís 4.5″ qHD IPS display is still plenty roomy. Power is supplied by a 1620mAh battery, and the superphone isnít going to challenge NECís Medias N-04c for slimmest Android honors. The behemoth Raider 4G tips the scales at almost 164 grams and measures 11.3mm thick ó compared to 105 grams and 7.7mm for the Medias.

And though you will find plenty of power, speed, and screen space on the Raider 4G, you wonít find Beats Audio tech ó which would have been a very nice addition on a device thatís clearly aimed at choosy power users who demand kick-butt hardware.

At least the phone hasnít been re-named Waikiki as it was once rumored, though that could still happen if it gets re-badged for its impending launch on AT&T.
