Are These the HTC Dragon/Zoom 2 Specs and Pics?

htc_dragon_003One handset that we admittedly haven’t done too much coverage on so far is the rumored HTC Dragon.  Also known as the HTC Zoom 2, the phone is being reported that it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which could put it in the 768MHz-1GHz stratosphere.

Here’s a quick rundown of some specs that were tipped our way earlier today. (Thanks Barry!)

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 (1GHz)
  • Android 2.0
  • 512MB ROM
  • 256MB RAM
  • 480 x 800 resolution touch screen w/ multi-touch
  • GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900, UMTS 900, 1900, 2100
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 5.0 MP camera
  • Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, GPS
  • FM Radio, Accelerometer

So what does a beast like this look like?  According to DroidDog, these pictures may be the first to surface showing the hardware design.  On the outside, its nothing too fancy – a little bit Hero, a little bit Desire.

While we’re on the subject of the Dragon, we should point you to a few screen grabs that DroidDog was able to get a hold of a few weeks back with the accompanying email.

So, what I’ve got here is a little build we’re referring to as the “Pet Dragon”. It’s highly experimental at the moment…HTC Dragon. (dubbed “Zoom 2″) —> the screen resolution is 800×480…This device is in fact operating on the “2.0″ firmware along with the HTC Sense user interface applied for style. So, it’s like an “Eclair Hero”.

But again, bare with me…it’s still very “bare bones” and needs a lot of work…but this device is going to be a GAME CHANGER! Perhaps more so than the HTC Leo!
