HTC Leo renderings and specifications leaked
I’ve gotten quite a few emails from HTC fans complaining that HTC has been focusing too much on Android and has forgotten about Windows Mobile. HTC has even admitted that Android is a key to their 2009 market strategy for growth, but it you’re still waiting for a new WM phone to drool over, HTC has a few more tricks up their sleeve for 2009.
A few new renderings of the HTC Leo have just surfaced that give us a good look at the front and back sides of the HTC handset. Early speculations indicated that the HTC Leo will measure 121×67×11 mm and will features 4.3 inch capacitive WVGA touch screen. We’re a bit surprised by this, but the Leo is also expected to ship with a 1 Ghz Qualcomm MSM 8250 processor which would make it HTC’s fastest and most powerful handset to date. A 5mp camera will be accompanied by an LED flash, 512MB ROM, 320MB RAM, and 1230 mAh battery. HTC will also be including a S-sensor, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and that coveter 3.5mm headphone jack for all the music junkies out there.
From what we see here, the HTC Leo is turning out be one of the most exciting HTC handsets in a while (ok, I’m still wishing I had the HTC Hero, but a 1Ghz processor in a phone can make anyone change their mind). It’s still way to early to speculate on pricing, but expect the HTC Leo to hit store shelves in Europe some time before the holiday season.
