We've been tracking the saga of the HTC Bliss - supposedly an Android phone targeted primarily at women - since we first reported its existence back in May, and we've now received a full list of specifications for the European version of the phone that confirm everything we've suspected. We're looking at a 3.7-inch Super LCD display at 800 x 480 resolution, tri-band 14.4Mbps HSPA, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 720p video capture, Bluetooth 3.0, single-band 802.11n, and a front-facing VGA sensor for video calling. That's not the good part, though: what really locks the Bliss as a match for our original description is the document's mention of a "charm indicator" in the box - this is the light-up bauble that we'd heard would be used to indicate incoming calls while hanging out of, say, a handbag.

Moving on, we've also got full specs for the Runnymede, which should be one of HTC's next flagship Android handsets. Like the Windows Phone-powered Titan, the Runnymede features a 4.7-inch display (just WVGA, unfortunately) along with a single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor. PocketNow had previously reported that the phone would be under 10mm thick, and we can confirm that it just barely makes the cut: 9.9mm, to be exact. You'll also be getting an 8-megapixel camera with 720p capture and dual-LED flash and 16GB of on-board storage (AndroidGuys has shown that there's likely a 32GB version as well, though we're not seeing it in our documents here). And finally, the Runnymede will be available in multiple SKUs, some of which will have Beats headsets in the box; our source tells us that it'll be among the first HTCs to take advantage of the company's recent $300m partnership with Beats Audio, along with the Sensation SE or LE (the name will vary from market to market).
