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.
