If you had any doubt that HTC would indeed stick with the “Rezound” branding (Vigor?), the image above, snapped by someone over at the Droid Life community, showing the device with the expected Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and red soft buttons. The company is expected to unveil the Rezound at an upcoming November 3rd press event New York. The Rezound is rumored to sport a 4.3-inch 720p display, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel main camera, and 4G LTE capabilities.
HTC has also just announced their Q3 earnings report (via SlashGear) where they recorded 13.2 million handsets shipped, accounting for a 68 profit growth and 93 percent increase from the last year quarter. They also announced profits of NT$18.68 billion (US$624 million), and a 79 percent year over year increase for revenues with NT$135.82 billion (US$4.5 billion). The company didn’t disclose which products, or more specifically which Android devices, make up which portions of the numbers. This comes on the heels of Samsung announcing an unconfirmed 28 million units shipped in Q3 to surpass Apple who announced approximately 17.1 million iPhones sold during the quarter (which of course didn’t include sales of the new iPhone 4S).
We’ll keep you updated live from the HTC press event on November 3rd.
