We know it when we see a familiar face. A new Android handset has just been announced by HTC for South Korea, the HTC Raider. The handset is the same, at least externally, as the rumored Holiday said to be released on AT&T. Following the trend of going bigger and faster, the Raider features a qHD (960 x 540) resolution 4-5-inch screen, running a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (our rumors pointed to a 1.2GHz processor for the Holiday, but that might have changed on the way).
The HTC Raider will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Sense 3.0 with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It’s a 4G LTE device, with 8-megapixel back and 1.3-megapixel front-facing cameras. Unfortunately HTC couldn’t do better than a 1620 mAh battery, which we are sure is going to make users very sad.
HTC will offer a DMB dongle, for the Raider 4G, allowing owners to tune into digital TV broadcasts in South Korea. The handset measures 128.8mm x 67mm x 11.27mm and will weigh 163.8g (5.8oz).
