Images of new HTC device running Android 4.0 leak ahead of MWC


With the Mobile World Congress set to kick off later this month Feb. 27 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain, PhoneArena (via BGR) posted alleged leaked photos of an unannounced HTC device running Ice Cream Sandwich. Your guess is as good as any when it comes to what the device will market as, but we do learn much about the mystery Android 4.0 smartphone’s specs.

The hardware information screen from one of the images indicates the device will sport a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel main camera (VGA on front), 1GB of RAM, and LTE capabilities. The report said sources claim the device has an AMOLED display and runs Sense UI 4.0 on top of ICS.

As for the device’s physical design, there are not many clues as to whether this is an upgraded model or a new product line. PhoneArena noted the backside of the device appears similar to the DROID Incredible 2, which led them to speculate it could possible be the HTC DROID Incredible 3. The design is not a huge departure from most of the company’s current smartphone offerings.

HTC detailed yesterday which devices would receive an ICS update in March. Check out the full list here.
