The pics are a little bit blurry, and no information about what version of Android (and HTC Sense if it's there at all) this handset's going to run, but the fact is it looks a little bit like the HTC Desire. However, it's too early to claim with absolute certainty whether it is going to be a successor of the above-mentioned phone - either by name or by features.
What are your first impressions of this handset? There is every chance that we're looking at the new HTC flagship model, and it's cool that the Taiwanese manufacturer has included a front-facing camera - seems like everyone wants one these days.
It's highly probable that we're going to see this phone during MWC in Barcelona (14-17 February), and we will be there to tell you all the details about this and many more handsets as soon as they are available.
