The HTC Incredible HD has apparently been renamed to the HTC Thunderbolt and the Android-based smartphone - which is set to be launched at CES 2011 - is also rumoured to come with 4G capabilities

German website HTC Inside (opens in new tab) published the complete specs list of the Thunderbolt and says that it will come with a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, support for LTE and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The handset may also come with SDXC card compability whch would allow the phone to support up to 128GB although such cards are already available, their cost is prohibitive (opens in new tab) at £500 (ed : a 64GB card can be had for around £100).

Other specifications include a front camera with a 5-megapixel resolution, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi and a 1800mAh battery - almost 50 per cent bigger than most HTC smartphones.

The current top of the range smartphone in the HTC range is the HTC Desire HD, which comes with a WVGA screen, 768MB RAM and a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, and can be had for around £450.
