A newly leaked marketing render of HTC’s upcoming Omega Windows Phone shows off one of the popular vendor’s first Mango-powered smartphones. BGR exclusively reported on Monday that HTC will be announcing multiple Windows Phones at a special event on September 1st. One will be the HTC Eternity, headed to AT&T in the near future, and another will be the T-Mobile-bound HTC Omega, pictured above for the first time. Pocketnow.com published the image on Thursday, and claimed that the phone could launch with the name “HTC Radar.” Omega, of course, is likely to remain a codename. Earlier rumors suggested that the Omega will pack a 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera. Rumor also suggests the device will include a 3.8-inch display, though our report indicated a 4.5-inch display size. Judging from the image above, 3.8 inches seems entirely more likely, which could mean that AT&T’s Eternity will sport the monster 4.5-inch screen we’ve been hearing about. We’ll all know for certain when HTC unveils both phones next Thursday. More →
BGR has exclusively learned that HTC plans to unveil several upcoming Windows Phone Mango devices at the company’s upcoming event taking place on September 1st. While Android is HTC’s bread and butter of course, our source confirms that Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone OS, Mango, will be the star of the show this time around. We have heard HTC will specifically be unveiling the HTC Eternity, a Windows Phone with 3.7-inch display headed to AT&T, in addition to the HTC Omega, a 4.5-inch Mango phone that is headed to T-Mobile USA. We don’t have exact launch dates at the moment, but we’re told that they could come sooner than expected. HTC declined to comment.
