Picture of the HTC Proto leaks

Picture of the HTC Proto leaks
It was earlier this month when we first told you about the HTC Proto. Now, a picture of the unannounced device has been leaked. As we told you back then, the HTC Proto is expected to be a "refresh" of the HTC One V with some important specs getting a bump up. First is the screen, which at 4 inches, is .3 inch larger than the HTC One V with the same WVGA resolution. Also due for a big-time shot in the arm is the processor, going from a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon to a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8225 S4 processor. The rest of the specs ape the HTC One V such as the 512MB of RAM on board and 5MP camera on the back.

Judging from the pictures of the HTC Proto, it looks like the handset's corners are a little more rounded, giving the phone a bit of a softer look, and the T-Mobile G1-esque chin has been surgically removed. The soft touch coating on the back has been liberally applied, but overall most will find the HTC Proto to be a step up from the HTC One V in looks as well as in specs. In fact, the HTC Proto resembles the higher end HTC One models like the HTC One X and HTC One S.

There is some speculation that we will see the HTC Proto introduced at IFA in Berlin. If so, we should learn all of that mundane information like pricing, launch date and carrier availability.
