HTC Hero’s successor, Legend is supposed to go live today in Barcelona, during the MWC 2010 tech show, but we already managed to score its specs and a neat official image of the device. HTC Legend runs Android 2.1 with HTC Sense UI and uses an optical trackball, visible in the following image.

The new handset features a 600 MHz CPU, 512 MB ROM, 384 MB RAM, a 3.2 inch AMOLED touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 pixel resolution, a GPS and a 3.5mm audio jack. As far as connectivity is concerned, you get HSPA/WCDMA, quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WiFi, microUSB and Bluetooth 2.1

There’s also a digital compass on board, a microSD card slot, a proximity and ambient light sensor, a G-sensor, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and a 1300 mAh battery. Expect the smartphone to be officially unveiled today and don’t forget to check out its hands on videos, once they surface.

  • It's literally a Nexus One minus the trackball, and replaced it with the trackpad. I think I will stick with the Nexus One for now.
