HTC Omega renders show front-facing camera
The Windows Phone Mango-powered HTC Omega is expected to be part of the big announcement at the HTC event that will be taking place on September 1st across four European countries. But, we've gotten leaked render images of what the Omega is expected to look like a little ahead of time thanks to Pocketnow. 

HTC Omega renders show front-facing camera
The HTC Omega, which may be called the HTC Radar upon launch, is expected to be packing a single-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon SoC, a 3.8" S-LCD screen, 512 MB RAM, an 8 MP rear-facing camera, and based on the renders, a front-facing camera as well. It was just leaked by Windows Phone NZ from the TechEd event in New Zealand that front-facing camera support would be part of Windows Phone Mango, and would include Skype integration. 

This is the first image of a WP7 phone with a front facing camera, and it is looking nice. It has the standard two-tone design from HTC, and looks to be either aluminum or just silver and white paint. It's definitely a nice looking device though. It'll be fun to see how well Skype works. We're hoping Microsoft isn't rushing it into WP7 since the acquisition of Skype just went through last month. That doesn't seem like a lot of time to "deeply integrate" Skype as has been advertised.

Okay, I am excited for W7. So no thumbs down .... but would it have killed HTC to go with a 4.3" screen? It seems they do a lot of small screens for Windows, with the only exception being the HD7. Than they go from 3.8" to 4.7" (the Eternity)??? With nothing in between? Strange.

That vent being out of the way, love the render. Love HTC. Love W7 Mango's potential. Can't hardly wait to see the hands on for some of these, and see which carrier gets what. Just KNOW Sprint is getting a couple of W7's this time around. Ain't ya Sprint??? And Verizon, don't you DARE look the other way. You are getting a couple as well.......

Why do all the HTC phones look the same ?
How about it's time to change the design a bit on HTC phones ?

there are lots of different ways you can design a phone, and still have it rectangular.
HTC always has the same design on all of their phone, and i think it is time for them to make some new designs, like the chacha.

No. HTC's phones are different. Samsung needs to change their designs. Ask Apple, if you disagree...

Apple can do something more useful than lying... maybe not ?

Bring it... But I agree with snowgator, larger screen from HTC (or in general) would be nice!

This have to be the sexiest Windows phone from HTC. But I still don't see why make a Windows 7 Phone when M$ sues HTC for every Android phone for 15$. just plan non sense
