Photos of a new HTC smartphone were leaked online, just a week before Mobile World Congress, and it was said to be HTC Saga. Could this be the successor to the HTC Desire?
HTC has done very well last year with their Q4 2010 financial announcement of a net profit of more than US$500 million. And that is mostly thanks to Google's Android mobile platform. With recent leak of the new HTC Saga smartphone, many speculated that this could be the successor to HTC Desire, or formerly known as the HTC Desire 2.
The HTC Saga looks similar to the Nexus One, except that it does not have the trackball below the display. However, the phone looks to be using an integrated design which means the cost would be fairly high. The HTC Saga will sport a 4-inch screen, possibly running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and has front and rear built-in camera.
It is still not known whether the HTC Saga will have at least an 8-megapixel camera and supports LTE 4G network. From the leaked pictures, the HTC Saga could be named HTC Desire 2 after all. We would only know when the company made the announcement at Mobile World Congress that is happening in Barcelona next week.
