However, this is very good news for people rocking the HTC Rezound 4G from the carrier because this means they now have more places and locations wherein they can use the handset to take advantage and maximize the carrier’s LTE coverage.
As for the HTC Rezound 4G, this is one of the more capable devices in the LTE lineup of Verizon and was at one point considered to be the best Android-powered handsets to be offered by the carrier. Some of our smartphone-crazed brethren would beg to disagree on the prior statement claiming that the handset is still stuck in the Gingerbread generation to be considered as the best handset at Verizon. Though this may be the case, there is no denying that the HTC Rezound 4G brings impressive components and capabilities to the table.
The handset was added to the lineup of Verizon last November wherein it hit the shelves of the carrier in the same month. The circuitry of the HTC Rezound 4G is built around a QualComm MSM8660 SnapDragon chipset where a dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion processor works in conjunction with a full gigabyte of RAM to generate the computing power needed by the handset for its flawless performance. The storage space of the handset is pegged at 16GB and Verizon is thoughtful enough to throw in a 16GB microSD card in the retail package of the handset for memory expansion purposes. Display-wise, the HTC Rezound 4G comes with a 4.3-inch SuperLCD panel with a 1280 x 720 resolution while its camera department is composed of a rear-facing 8MP shooter and a front-facing 2MP vide call and self-portrait camera.
