When the original HTC Titan was released by AT&T back in October of last year, the massive handset from the Taiwanese smartphone and tablet manufacturer immediately blew all the competition in the Windows Phone ecosystem away in terms of screen size with its “Titan”-ic 4.7-inch SuperLCD display. The handset also coupled that with impressive components under the hood making it the undisputable bad boy of the Windows Phone spectrum.

Now, the HTC Titan is getting ready for an early retirement after only sitting for 6 months in the shelves because its successor, the HTC Titan II, is already well on its way to again kick up a storm in the Windows Phone ecosystem. Announced by HTC back in January at CES 2012, the HTC Titan II will finally hit the shelves of the wireless provider this coming April 8 and will be released alongside another Windows Phone device, the Nokia Lumia 900. The HTC Titan II will come in with a price point of $199.99 with a new two-year contract with AT&T.
Like its predecessor which as mentioned earlier brought the biggest display in the Windows Phone ecosystem, the HTC Titan II also has an ace up its sleeve once it makes its first appearance in the shelves. It will still have the biggest display with its 4.7-inch SuperLCD similar to what’s in its predecessor but it also brings to the fold a very impressive 16-megapixel (that’s right, 16MP) rear-facing shooter to the fold, thereby making it the Windows Phone packing a rear shooter with the highest resolution in the spectrum. Aside from the high sensor resolution, the rear shooter of the HTC Titan II has a backside-illuminated sensor so you can be assured of pictures of exceptional image quality. To give you an idea of what else you can expect from the HTC Titan II, we have the specs sheet of the handset below to get you up close and personal with what could be the best Windows Phone handset to date.
Because of its massive display, the HTC Titan II comes with an even more massive frame that measures 132 x 69 x 13 mm but only weighs in at 147 grams. Just by looking at its mug shots, the handset already gives off the impression of being solidly-built. Under the hood, the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system of the HTC Titan II is powered by its QualComm S2 SnapDragon processor while the delivery of computing power is jointly undertaken by the handset’s 1.5 GHz Scorpion processor and 512 MB of RAM. It will come with a non-expandable 16GB of internal memory while its massive display measures 4.7 inches diagonally and is of the SuperLCD variant with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. as mentioned earlier, the claim to fame of the HTC Titan II is its 16MP rear-facing shooter capable of 720p video recording while its front-facer has a sensor resolution of 1.3MP and is ideal for taking self-portraits and enjoying video chats even while on the go.
