HTC prepping 16MP-toting WP7 smartphone

A Windows Phone 7 (WP7) powered, 16-megapixel camera phone is on the way from HTC, rumours suggest, as phone-makers look to stir-up fresh interest in Microsoft’s flagging platform.

Leaked in a video sourced by PocketNow, the phone’s snapper would be the highest grade yet seen on a smartphone and will be augmented with dual LED flash, which suggests it’ll be pretty damn capable in low-light conditions.

Other than its imaging capabilities, specs are under wraps right now, except for the fact that it's running the latest version of WP7.

News of HTC’s plans comes amid reports that despite a good reception from the tech press the initial slew of WP7 mobiles’ sales were disappointing, as consumers opted for Android and iPhones instead in the pre-Christmas rush.

Recent figures are unavailable, but a month after release it was claimed that just 117,000 handsets had been sold.
