The HTC Hero measures 112 x 56.2 x 14.35mm, and weighs 135g.
Compared with the iPhone 3G S, the Hero weighs exactly the same, and is slightly smaller but also slightly thicker. Its screen is smaller, but of the same resolution.
The HTC Hero has a 1350mAh battery that will, according to the manufacturer, last comfortably for a day.
It also has a flashless, five-megapixel, autofocus camera that provides higher resolutions than the G1 and Magic's 3.2 megapixels.
The Hero runs on a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A processor, as used in the Magic. The chip also underpins the Touch Diamond 2, one of HTC's recent Windows Mobile phones.
Other internal specifications for the Hero include assisted GPS, a digital compass, a gravity sensor and microSD-based expandability.
The Hero, unlike the G1 and Magic, does not require a mini-USB adapter to use 3.5mm-jacked headphones.
