Las Vegas - HTC unveiled its first Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone equipped with 4G LTE technology, and it's promoted as offering an alternative to compact point-and-shoot cameras thanks to such features as a built-in 16-megapixel camera.
The HTC Titan II is expected to be available in the coming months on the AT&T 4G LTE and 4G HSPA+ networks.
The phone features a 4.7-inch super LCD display, 16-megapixel camera with 720p video capture, f/2.6 wide-angle lens, autofocus, dual LED flash, red-eye reduction, image stabilization and a backside-illuminated sensor, allowing for what HTC called a "viable replacement for digital point-and-shoot cameras." Other camera features include panoramic shot for sweeping landscapes and burst shot for action photography.
Video chat over Wi-Fi is enabled via its 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Other features include a 1.5 GHz processor and 1,730mAh lithium-ion battery.
