HTC Thunderbolt Advert Hints at 8 MP Camera & Video Chat Capabilities

January 3, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We know you have been bombarded with news on the HTC Thunderbolt during that past few days. While many had told you about some of the out-of-the-world specs the device would come with, we are yet to get a full hold on what all the device would come carrying.

As if in addition to all we have got to see and read about during the past week or so, we now have stumbled upon new specs as revealed by a new ad. Now that the revelations have come through a much more reliable source, that is HTC itself, we guess we need to believe them.

What we get to see is a device under a cloak (pictured alongside). And, it proclaims that the HTC Thunderbolt will boast of an 8 Mega Pixel camera and also video chat capabilities. When HTC says video chat, we infer that it would be by way of 4G and a front-facing camera.

Further, the device also promises high definition entertainment which could thereby mean that the display is going to be one that would be noteworthy.

The specs that the advertisement reveals may not seem something path-breaking as such, but then we expect them to be top-of-the-line stuff.  We expect HTC to officially introduce to the technology arena the device at least next week.

From what we have understood earlier, the device was to come sporting a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 dual-core processor. However, we haven’t yet come to terms with that rumor, as we know the chips will not be available until 2012.

Now, the latest specs give us some idea of how the cloaked device will look like when the wraps are finally off.  May be, HTC will live up to what it claims by way of its ‘Quietly Brilliant’ tagline.  Look forward to more on the Thunderbolt in a few days.
