The HTC Holiday has been somewhat elusive up until now, but 911sniper has gotten ahold of a leaked ROM that, if legit, shows some absolutely beastly specs for this upcoming AT&T monster. Check it out:


Here's the simple breakdown:

  • 4.5 Inch qHD 960x540 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

If the actual device holds true to these specs (and I see no reason why it wouldn't), then this is definitely a piece of hardware to watch for. With specs like that, it's likely to scorch everything on the market.

    Sounds like the sensation.

    • Cameron Summerson

      The Sensation is a bit different - 768MB of RAM and a 4.3 inch display.

    wow seems nice i hope it drops to at&t :D
    i see cingular... lets pray... since sensation tmo,evo sprint, so with luck will be for at&t :D

    I've been waiting for a 4.3 dual core device for literally a year. As a current AT&T customer, this thrills me, however, if I have to wait til the actual holiday for this device I may cry.

    • Travis

      This is actually a 4.5 inch, which is quite a monstrocity. However, it is my belief that once you go for 4.5, even from 4.3, you won't go back.

    • Stuart

      Just import a Samsung Galaxy S2 from the UK. It works on AT&T 3G and will still best any HTC that comes by the holidays and it will get updates months before any US carrier branded varieties do. Like someone else said, HTC have gone from best to almost bottom of the pecking order. I find qualcomm to be inferior to Samsung processors not to mention they are getting locked up tighter than Fort Knox :(

        I'd like to know what are you smoking out there cause you sound delusional. every manufracturer devices have locked bootloaders it is NOT encrypted, thats what makes the difference. Htc is supported by the android community rom are flashed phones are rooted routinely with htc device since day one. Samsung could never touch htc with a ten foot pole they only wish they can be better than htc. Being a current Htc Evo 4g owner that has my preorder in for the Htc Evo 3d which clearly will be the best android device on the market for 2011 espically with the adreno 220 gpu trust me this will PIMP SLAP YOUR GALAXY S2. Plus we wont even get into the SORRY KEIS and UPDATE PROBLEMS that exist with Samsung rather it be here in the states or not they should address this issue because customers are customers rather we live here or abroad. Htc makes samsung LOOK SORRY IN SO MANY WAYS....The Evo 3d is great for starters Evo 3d will slap around you S2 all night long

          Show me the same with Inc2/IncS. The Thunderbolt was only rooted due to pure luck and a few other circumstances that you are not aware of.

  • Nathan

    My Thunderbolt will be the last HTC I buy I guess. Within the past 5 months, the phone world has turned upside down, and HTC went from being the most obvious buy for rooting/customization, to the very worst. Everything is locked down and encrypted, while even Motorola has announced their upcoming phones will have an option to unlock the bootloader. Heck, we even have SE writing blogs about how to compile kernels for their phones...

    Great specs, and quite possibly a great phone. Now if they'd only let me do with it what I want...I don't want Sense, I don't want all the crap...just give me AOSP.

    Oh well...Samsung seems to be turning things around quite a bit...maybe I'll look at them again, even after the fiasco of a Galaxy S.

    • richardyarrell

      @Nathan....What are you smoking it's amazing what people say but don't provide the facts. it is locked, all bootloaders are locked. it is NOT encrypted, thats what we were worried about. Htc does not encrypte their device they support the mod community that is why the Evo 4g and Nexus one as well as the g1 are the most easiest device to root. Htc makes Samsung look so silly and yes the Evo 3d will be the best android device for 2011. It will slap silly your Galaxy S2 all night long

  • Dan

    @Nathan: Motorola is still worse than HTC ;)

  • dragonithe

    Great specs,
    But the locked bootloader is something I can't forgive HTC.
    They where so good, and now ...

    • Joshp406

      You can blame Verizon for that fiasco with the bootloader

      • element4life3

        Then why does the Sensation, that is coming to T-Mobile, have a locked bootloader? I think HTC just wants people to invest themselves in Sense and cut out roms for good...

        • dragonithe

          And so far I know it's also not just the US carriers.
          Here in Europe they also started doing it whit the incredible S.

  • richardyarrell

    Rather it is the Evo 3d or the Sensation all bootloaders are locked. it is NOT encrypted, thats what we were worried about. All carriers and their device have looked bootloaders that never stopped the Evo 4g for being the most rooted android device. Htc will NEVER ENCRYPTED THEIR DEVICES.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Don't start the FUD again - the EVO 4G is completely different and Sensation/Inc2 are as good as encrypted.

    • jcase

      You are right, they are not encrypted, however they have an ENCRYPTED SIGNATURE on the bootloader, the recovery and the kernel.

      This signature makes them much much much harder to replace. Combine that with what appears to be permanent RO to the radio config (lets hope someone proves this wrong), root may just be a hard #@$@#. Lets hope a signed ENG ruu leaks.

      Evo 4G is an entirely different device, with different security schemes. To compare the two as being equal, is just ignorant.

  • tony

    why is the processor a 8660 isnt that CDMA? wouldnt it be 8260?
