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.
