A closer look, a new image and specs on the HTC Bravo (aka Passion)

We saw that leaked HTC roadmap the other day and were given a pretty good idea as to what we can expect to come from HTC in 2010. All things considered, it looks like we have a few decent handsets to look forward to seeing come available. But in the meantime we are stuck waiting and digging for what information can be pulled and found.

And with that, we are now being given a little bit of a closer look at one of those handsets by way of Ai.rs.

So far, what we now have is the better image, which can be seen below. But here is a closer look at those specs. To begin with the Bravo will be powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm QSD 8250 Snapdragon processor, which may be good or bad depending on how you look at it. The higher processor may in turn run Android and any apps a little smoother, but also may take a little more of a hit battery wise.

Otherwise, the Bravo will have a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, 512MB flash memory, 320MB RAM, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, GPS, G-sensor, a digital compass, FM radio, 3.5mm headphone jack and an “optical joystick.” Finally, it will have a 1400mAh battery and come with Android 2.0.

As of now an official release date, nor pricing has been mentioned. But as far as the rumor goes, it looks like we can expect to see the Bravo become available here in the US during January with a European release coming a little later in April.
