Despite the fact that we've already seen the phone previously known as the HTC Holiday running on AT&T's LTE network, the first carrier to get this monster device will in fact be South Korea's SK Telecom. The phone will be released under the moniker Raider 4G, and packs some pretty serious hardware under the hood:

  • 4.5-inch qHD display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • 16GB internal storage
  • LTE
  • Android 2.3.4 with Sense 3.0


There's no word when this phone will be available outside of South Korea, but considering AT&T just started lighting up its LTE network and doesn't yet have a smartphone available that supports it, we expect a US announcement fairly soon.

    Is sense 3.5 exclusive to the rhyme only? I'm having trouble understanding why these new htc phones are coming out with outdated software. There's enough fragmentation on android already, for htc to allow fragmentation among its own devices seems idiotic to me.

    Why is it only CDMA and not GSM?

    The Raider name works for me. What I like is that it Does have the 16GB internal storage, 1GB RAM. The battery is a little small, but maybe just big enough, and, if that back comes off nicely, it makes it a candidate for a Seidio mongo battery and back a la the TBolt. I'd love to see a kickstand, but I'll survive without it, likewise the absence of the Beats Audio, though I'd REALLY like that.
