Smartphone buffs are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next generation Touch Diamond, the Touch Diamond 3 and now speculations are ripe that the HTC Obsession will indeed be the Touch Diamond 3. The smartphone which will be the first HTC phone running on Windows Mobile 7 will arrive at AT&T and T-Mobile stores in the US.

The phone will arrive with a 1GHz Snapdragon platform meaning that its speed will be comparable to that of the HD2. Another first for the HTC Touch Diamond 3 will be an AMOLED touchscreen.

Speculations also reveal that the Touch Diamond 3 will be coming with a 5MP camera that will be blessed with 720p video recording, however the frame rate will be a disappointing 25 frames per second. The memory status will be the same as the Touch Diamond 2 with 4GB of internal storage capacity while the microSDHC slot will accommodate a 32GB card.

The gossip hounds believe that the Touch Diamond 3 will not arrive before June this year and even when it does, there will be no place for a CDMA variant owing to the poor sales of its predecessors. [via: Electronista]
