One of the yet unannounced handsets the Taiwanese phone maker HTC Corporation is expected to deliver to the market in the not too distant future is the HTC Legend, which was spotted around the web a few times before. A new photo with the device has just emerged, along with some more details on its capabilities, showing us what to expect from it when launched on the market.
Both the photo and the new info on HTC Legend made it into the wild via Engadget, which says that one should expect for the handset to boast a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display capable of delivering an HVGA resolution, as well as a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, which is one and the same chip included in two already launched mobile phones, the Motorola DEVOUR and the Palm Pixi.
At the same time, the specifications list of HTC's upcoming device is also said to show a 5-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash, a nice range of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi capabilities, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and support for quad band GSM / EDGE and dual band HSPA frequencies, not to mention a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Other than that, the HTC Legend is expected to come around with a magnetic compass and a 1300mAh battery inside. Google's Android operating system should be present on this handset too, making it quite appealing for those who consider the Nexus One a little too expensive for their taste. Unfortunately, there are no details available on when the new mobile phone lands, nor on the markets that are set to receive it.
For what it's worth, since the Mobile World Congress is only a few days ahead, there are great chances that HTC will unveil new handsets there, HTC Legend included, so we'll keep our fingers crossed for that to happen. In the mean time, take a look at the new photo that emerged with the phone, to admire its hard-edged aluminum theme and the somehow familiar look it sports.
