HTC Leo new images, specs emerge

The HTC Leo has made another appearance, this time courtesy of ai.rs, and the spec sheet for this Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone continues to grow in detail.  The 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen handset runs at WVGA resolution and packs Qualcomm's MSM8250 Snapdragon 1GHz chipset, together with a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and dual-LED flash.

That camera comes in at a lower resolution than the last figure - 8-megapixels - we heard, which will be a disappointment to some, but hopefully the rear-panel render (which you can see in the gallery below) will make up for it.  Other specs include a microSD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, GPS and A-GPS, together with a g-sensor, both ambient light and proximity sensors, and a 3.5mm headset jack.

There's also dualband WCDMA/HSPA (900/2100MHz) and quadband GSM/EDGE, setting the Leo up for 7.2Mbps downlinks and 2Mbps uplinks, network depending.  ROM is 512MB and RAM 320MB, and the whole thing measures a skinny 121 x 67 x 11 mm.  That's a little longer and wider than the Touch HD but a millimeter thinner.

No word on pricing, but the HTC Leo is expected to drop onto operators' shelves in October.
