Following yesterday’s news that Windows Phone Mango is now available to manufacturers, details of HTC’s first Mango handset — the Omega — have been published by Gadgetian, with suggestions it could be ready for launch this fall.
The Omega is said to sport a 3.8-inch touchscreen display and could be a mid-ranged Mango-powered follow-up to the HTC 7 Mozart. It will pack a 1.5GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of storage and an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, according to the report.
In comparison with the Mozart, the Omega has a faster processor and double the storage — though it does share the same level of RAM and a similar 8-megapixel camera. There’ll be no expandable storage via microSD, according to the report, which isn’t uncommon for a 16GB Windows Phone handset.
Details on the Omega’s other components seem to be scarce at this point, but the device is likely to boast common connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. Gadgetian doesn’t accompany its report with any images of the device, which is unfortunate, but it does offer some early case designs, pictured to the right.
I haven’t heard of Gadgetian before, and while I’d hate to dismiss its information or its sources, I’d suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt for the time being. The site does promise we’ll get “original high-quality images, exact release date, and the price info of the HTC Omega smartphone as soon as [they] get more official updates,” so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for that.
What do you think of these specifications? Does this sound like a Windows Phone Mango device you’d be interested in?
