HTC Raider 4G shoulders its way onto the scene in the Far East

HTC Raider 4G shoulders its way onto the scene in the Far EastWell it's great to see HTC finally working on something new, isn't it? This is the HTC Raider 4G, the latest effort to shoot off the overworked HTC production line over in South Korea.

So just to confirm, then. It's the HTC Raider – not to be confused with anything else we've seen from HTC recently. Like the Rhyme, the Bliss, the Bass, the Runnymede, the Sensation XE, the Titan, the Radar, the Ruby, or the Omega. And I'm sure we've missed a few there.

If there's any HTC-branded space in your brain still available, the Raider 4G does actually look like the kind of handset worth remembering.

To start with, it comes packing the same 1.5GHz dual-core processor found in the Sensation XE, as well as a 4.5in qHD screen, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A fairly heady mix of high-end Android features (with HTC Sense spread on top, of course). Oh yeah, there's even full HD video recording, along with the more predictable 8-megapixel stills shooting.

And that “4G” label means it's equipped to jump onto those lightning-fast LTE networks we'd love to get a sniff of here in the UK, what with their 100Mbps downloads and 50Mbps uploads.

Sounds pretty nice, and while it's South Korea only for now, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Raider 4G or something similar finding its way westward before too long.

Of course, if it's true to recent HTC form, when it does it'll go through about four different names and three genders before it actually appears on the shelves...

Damn, Treab... you beat me. I thought the same - much better looking than the usual HTC android fare.
