Another day, another piece of leaked news about a smartphone. This time, the smartphone in question is the upcoming HTC Knight, and based on what preliminary findings have revealed, it is going to be quite the powerhouse in terms of features, hardware and connectivity. More on this coming right up after the break.
Smartphones. We just cannot seem to survive without them nowadays, and for good reason: they have enough processing power to serve as tiny handheld computers. Backed up with the fact that they are always connected to the Internet via the wonders of 3G and WiFi, it is little surprise that the smartphone is fast taking over as one of the ‘must-haves’ for a busy professional who needs to be wired online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Needless to say, leaks about upcoming smartphone models are always highly sought after, for a variety of reasons. The technophile will be curious to find out about various new features or hardware being added, while the user will probably be more interested in how it makes like more convenient for them. And while the latest leak about an upcoming HTC smartphone known as the Knight may not have anything of interest for the end-user yet, it sure has something great for the technophiles.
According to BGR.com, the upcoming HTC Knight will sport a 3.7-inch touchscreen, just like the one found on the Nexus One (which was also made by HTC). However, the Knight will also come with sliding QWERTY keyboard, which suggests that it might be geared more towards business and enterprise use, where such a keyboard will be great for professionals who need their email fix while on the move.
In addition to the sliding QWERTY keyboard, BGR.com also claims that the Knight will come with built-in support for 4G connectivity, along with an eight-megapixel camera. While those are features highly sought after by most typical consumers, technophiles will probably be excited by the fact that the Knight will supposedly ship with a dual-core processor at launch. No information about the hardware is given, but we’d speculate that the Knight might ship with a Snapdragon or an ARM Cortex-A9 based processor, both of which currently feature dual-core variants in their lineup.
Unfortunately, that is all the information that we managed to dig up about the elusive but quietly brilliant HTC Knight. However, we are certain that more details about the smartphone will slip out in time as the handset approaches its retail date, so do check back for updates.
