Snaps of what appears to be the third in HTC’s best-selling Desire range of smartphones have surfaced online, as the Taiwanese phone maker looks to see off Samsung’s challenge for the crown of the go-to brand for Android.
An image depicting a handset that very definitely takes its design cues from earlier Desire phones has been unearthed by PocketNow. Not least in the gently curved edges that recall the original Desire, as well as its expansive touchscreen that’s estimated to come in at around a flagship phone-worthy four inches or so.
Alas, there’s nothing in the way of confirmed specs yet. But assuming this is what we’re being led to believe, it’ll almost certainly run Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box.
News of the handset comes as HTC is expected to lift the lid on its first-ever Android powered tablet computer at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month. Rumoured names for the device include the Scribe and the Flyer.
The high-profile tech expo takes place in Barcelona between February 14th and 17th. We’ll have a man on the ground, so keep ‘em peeled for further developments.
