HTC has just unveiled its long-awaited Rezound, and it’s the first smartphone in the U.S. to come stocked with Beats Audio. That means that the device will come with a high-definition audio experience unlike any other device on the market today.
The HTC Rezound enables customers to hear music the way the artist intended with unique audio tuning by Beats that delivers thundering bass, soaring midrange and crisp highs. Unique to HTC, the HTC Rezound also includes new lightweight Beats headphones, created exclusively to integrate with the Beats’ audio profile on the device. Hands-free calling is easy with the built-in microphone and the on-cable remote to pause, advance or rewind and answer a call mid-track.
The Rezound is the first HTC phone with a true HD 720p display, on its 4.3 inch screen. It’s got a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and will run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The device features a rear-facing 8 MP camera and a front-facing 2 MP camera and is capable of 1080p video.
