HTC shows off Rezound smartphone with Beats audio HTC has launched their Rezound smartphone this week, a multimedia-heavy device that promises "thundering bass, soaring midrange and crisp highs" due to integrated Beats Audio.
The company acquired Beats over the summer for $300 million.

Rezound owners will enjoy an Android 2.3 phone with a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16 GB of on-board memory, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 16GB microSD card, an 8MP camera with autofocus, dual LED flash and an f/2.2 and 28 mm wide-angle lens with BSI sensor.

The device will have an HD 720p display and a 4.3-inch super-LCD screen.

Beats Audio co-founder Jimmy Iovine added:

HTC fully recognizes the destruction to audio caused by the digital revolution. It embraces our vision to repair this ecosystem and bring the feeling from the recording studio to the smartphone. This is only the beginning of our plan to fix how music is delivered.


The device is upgradeable to Android 4.0 in the Q1 2012 and comes with special headphones included.

LoL...I see that they still consider it a "multimedia" phone just by including headphones; nevermind that the speaker is tiny and useless.

i agreed, after i heard they did nothing to the speakers on Sensation XE I was disappointed on how they do things.

Being nice always has its own consequences

However the good news is that HTC has actually listened and has gone back to using conventiontional back covers, instead of the slot in batteries:
