UK Retailer "Leaks" HTC Desire HD Details

The follow up of the wildly popular HTC Desire could come to the UK in October 2010 according to the details published by a UK-based online retailer.

SuperEtrader (opens in new tab) says that the phone, which carries the codename Ace, will have a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen (bigger than the 3.7-inch of the Desire), an 8-megapixel camera with HD video recording capabilities, 1GHz Qualcomm CPU, Android 2.2 OS, support for Flash, Xvid, SRS Surround and 4GB internal memory (expandable to 36GB).

The other interesting tidbit is the fact that it will feature an "aluminium unibody design" like the one that's on the HTC Legend. We heard rumours about the HTC Ace earlier last week when the roadmap of the Taiwanese companyw as leaked by Omio.

The main difference was the processor type with Omio saying that the Ace would come with a dual core Qualcomm model running at 1.5GHz with Android 3.0 rather than 2.2 (this makes sense as Android OS 3.0 will be launched in October).

Curiously, other HTC phones with various codenames like the Evo 4G or the Scorpion, also share the same set of features and specs.
