One of the best selling American smartphones is reported to arrive to the old continent in a refreshed version.
My friend Andrea from MobileGeek.it found this good news regarding the HTC Thunderbolt, a powerful smartphone that we had the opportunity to test at the last Mobile World Congress but that as of today is an exclusive of the American carrier Verizon. According to a German source, the smartphone may be distributed to selected European markets after receiving a hardware refresh to make it more appealing. The original HTC Thunderbolt in fact features a single-core 1GHz processor which nowadays would make it a mid-range device.
With its nice and strong design, the kickstand revealing a huge speaker, and the 4.3-inch display, the European HTC Thunderbolt may receive a dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz processor, keep its 768MB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, and be upgraded to Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0. There may even be the Beats by Dr.Dre technology to boost its audio capabilities. The cameras are an 8Mpx with dual-LED flash on the back and a 1.3Mpx on the front.
Do you think the HTC Thunderbolt may be a good alternative to the HTC Sensation, even though the two devices would share most of their specifications?
