Happy with your shiny, just a few months young AT&T HTC Titan Windows Phone? Don’t look now, lest you get buyer’s remorse: For the sequel is already upon us.
At the AT&T Developer Summit this morning, the carrier announced the Titan II, an LTE equipped monster of a device that picks up where the original left off with a 16 megapixel (!) camera to go with that zippy 4G LTE data support. CEO Ralph de la Vega was joined onstage by HTC CEO Peter Chou and Microsoft head Steve Ballmer to launch the Titan II, one of five LTE enabled smartphones unveiled at the AT&T Developer Summit.
Expected to hit retail outlets in the second quarter of this year, Titan II is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 processor and boasts the largest display currently available on any Windows Phone device. Additionally, that whopping 16 megapixel camera was described by AT&T as “industry leading,” and features an illuminated backlight sensor for better low light performance as well as a dedicated image processor.
Along with Titan II, AT&T also made reference to a forthcoming Nokia Windows Phone with LTE support to be announced at Nokia’s own press conference later today. That device, which we expect to be the Lumia 900 “Ace,” will also go on sale next quarter.
