An image of what is purported to be the latest in the Desire branded range of HTC Android phones has surfaced online, apparently giving Fanroids their first proper look at what’s sure to be one of 2011’s most-wanted smarties.
Unearthed by Androidforums user Rastaman FB, the handset reportedly runs Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box and a Galaxy S-esque Super AMOLED screen of unconfirmed resolution.
Other than that specs are hard to come by. But the image suggests that the capacitive buttons have replaced the tactile ones that featured in the original Desire. The photo also indicates it’ll pack a front-facing camera for video calling.
The image, the provenance of which is not yet known, is the first legit-looking snap of the handset so far. Previously, all we’d had to go on was a mystery shot of an all-touchscreen device which although many had fingered as the Desire 2, is now looking increasingly like a generic place-holder.
HTC is likely to unveil new additions to its product portfolio next week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As well as the Desire 2, we’re also expecting to see the launch of the Taiwanese company’s first ever tablet computer.
