HTC Proto Photos Leak

HTC (2498) hasn’t been making many waves in the smartphone market this summer, but pictures of a new HTC device code-named the “Proto” emerged on Thursday, and it looks like the company’s followup to the One series that launched earlier this year. From a specs perspective, The Verge says the Proto is just 9.62 millimeters thin and features a four-inch display WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera and a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor. The site describes the phone’s overall design as “a rounded, flowing case that more closely mimics the higher-end models in the One range.” It should be noted, however, that this phone looks as though its specs will pale in comparison to the HTC One X+ that’s been rumored to launch this fall — the Proto will likely fall near the low end of HTC’s portfolio ahead of the holidays.
