French designer Antoine Brieux, who has created the concepts of the HTC Tube (smartphone, tablet PC and notebook), introduces a more modest concept of a flagship smartphone. The device is called the HTC Blast, and it’s based on a real HTC flagship — the HTC Sensation, but still has a number of differences.
The first difference is the larger display; its diagonal is 4.7 inches. The screen size did not affect the size of the smartphone, as the author has left out the standard physical keys at the bottom of the front panel, and now they appear on the screen. The smartphone uses the HAND POWER technology, which allows you to activate the screen without physical buttons. The resolution of its AMOLED display is 1280×720 pixels.
The HTC Blast is based on a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 and an Adreno 220graphics chip. The memory comes with 1 GB of RAM and ROM, a built-in 32 GB hard drive and a slot for microSD. It also has two cameras: The main one is located on the rear panel, it is 12 megapixel with dual LED flash and captures videos at 1080p; there is also a 3.2 megapixel front camera for video calls.
The HTC Blast operates on 3G and 4G, and supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and all of this lays on the shoulders of the 1800 mAh battery. And, of course, the main surprise of the concept is the fact that the smartphone is running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which is intended only for Tablet PCs. The pre-installed Android interface of the HTC Blast is surely the HTC Sense.
