HTC just announced the Rezound, a new multimedia behemoth of a smartphone.It has a high-def 720p display, Beats by Dre audio fidelity, some slick new camera shooting modes, and Verizon’s excellent 4G LTE network.

Check out some pictures of our hands-on with the new device, hitting shelves November 14th for $299.99.

Here's the Rezound, HTC's latest and greatest smartphone, with built-in Beats By Dre.

HTC CEO Peter Chou and Dr. Dre put their heads together and embedded Beats By Dre into the Rezound.

The Rezound is HTC's first smartphone with a 720p video screen.

Even the inside of the phone looks good. It's made of translucent red plastic.

It's bigger and thicker than the iPhone, but it's actually pretty light.

The Rezound has a rubbery finish that feels nice in your hands.

Beats can be turned on and off because it uses some battery life.

The Rezound's 8MP camera is the best camera HTC has ever produced. They invested heavily after user complaints about camera quality.

A decent pair of Beats By Dre earbuds and remote come with the phone.

Three cool new shooting modes are here, plus onboard editing and even slow-mo video shooting.
