Previously we showed you the first press shot of the HTC Runnymede, which is similar to the HTC Titan WP7 phone with a 4.7″ screen and a modest 1.5Ghz Single core processor. That was accompanied by 768MB of RAM, 16/32GB internal memory, 1600mAh battery and two cameras; front 1.3MP for video calling a rear 8MP camera which can shoot 720p at 60FPS. Previously some rumors stated that the Runnymede would arrive as the HTC Bass but now a new source says that the cell is indeed joining the flagship Sensation line as the XL.

This is a surprise since the Runnymede is not very similar to the Sensation line which currently includes the Sensation vanilla and Beats infused Sensation XE. The Runnymede/XL is only a single core whereas the Sensation and Sensation XE are 1.2Ghz and 1.5Ghz dual cores respectively. The RAM is uniform across the three devices and all sport 1.3/8MP cameras. Where the XL looses in processing power, it makes up with a larger screen at 4.7″ compared to the other two’s 4.2″ screens.
