According to this partial close up leaked by TmoNews, HTC’s upcoming smartphone will pack in a gorgeous 4.3-inch qHD display and run a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. Back and front cameras sport eight and two megapixels, respectively. The exterior design calls for a myTouch-like enclosure, but don’t let this fool you – this one’s gonna be a completely new phone allegedly branded under the HTC Ruby moniker.

Other perks include dedicated buttons to quickly take snaps and capture video and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity. The Ruby should arrive “later this year” via T-Mobile, the publication reports. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the device comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich which is slated to debut on select phones in the fourth quarter of this year.
