HTC Rezound Hits Verizon Nov. 14th for $299: Beats Audio, 720p Display

HTC has officially joined the Verizon superphone party this holiday, combining high-quality Beats Audio with dual-core power and fast 4G LTE speeds. You also get a 4.3-inch display with full 720p resolution (just like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus), a first for HTC phones. The Rezound will be available Nov. 14th for $299.

The Rezound features a 1.5-GHz dual core processor, 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM. The design has a cool textured back and red accents. The device is running the latest version of HTC Sense (3.5), and the company promises that the phone is Ice Cream Sandwich ready, saying that it will likely be available early next year.

Borrowing some of the mojo form the HTC Amaze 4G, the Rezound sports a robust 8-MP camera with high-end features, such as action burst, instant capture, and panorama mode. There’s also an f2.2 lens to maximize the amount of light coming in. You can record video at up to 1080p resolution. The Rezound can even record in slow motion and let you play footage back in slow-mo.

HTC and Verizon will bundle a pair of high-end earbuds with in-line controls to help users enjoy Beats Audio out of the box. Verizon bragged at the launch event that the Rezound’s 4G LTE speeds will let users download MP3s in four seconds flat.
