HTC CEO Peter Chou took the stage at AT&T's developer conference keynote, and held up the HTC Titan II - AT&T's first LTE WP7 device. This comes just a few hours before Nokia is expected to present its own LTE-enabled WP7 device on AT&T.
The Titan II includes a whopping 16 MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor with a wide angle optical system alongside dual LED flash, image stabilization, and 720p video recording. The Titan II is also powered by a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 SoC, in line with current WP7 devices.
We'll get hands on with the HTC Titan II soon and update with our impressions.

ananduser - Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - linkThe first Titan's camera was reviewed as exceptional by GSMArena. I am sure this one would be an improvement.
ant1pathy - Monday, January 9, 2012 - linkSome people want a larger screen. Bigger keyboard, better media experience. I don't personally like them, but they are fairly popular. And a larger footprint lets you put in a bigger battery.
zorxd - Monday, January 9, 2012 - link4.7" would be nice if it had 1280x720 pixels or better.
TrackSmart - Monday, January 9, 2012 - linkI like large screens, but this one appears to be the same low-resolution as the outgoing model (800x480), which negates some of the benefits. Why not go whole-hog and update the display to a modern smartphone resolution, too?
ananduser - Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - linkIt is a limitation with WP. That is why all WP handsets can't have more than 1 core and why they all have the same resolution across all devices.

More like, Microsoft has set base limits that each phone must reach to maintain stability between the different models. Eventually the limit will be increased to include dual core... something that the platform hasn't needed at all as the OS is damn fast.
Hrel - Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - linkYou are aware that THIS phone has a dual core in it right?
Icyicy9999 - Monday, January 9, 2012 - linkIn the Lumia 800 review you said that WP7 compresses images so much there's visible artifacts, wouldn't that ruin a 16MP camera?
Brian Klug - Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - linkThat's true, hopefully HTC has managed to turn that compression level down, or this is going to be interesting.
