We briefly wrote about the HTC Ace, the codename for the new a new device the company is purportedly working on.
Previously we got wind that the Ace would be a HTC EVO 4G sans WiMAX but this is not confirmed and there are two sides of the story. Another source claims that the HTC Ace is actually a Desire dressed in Droid Incredible clothes destined for European markets.
We’re more inclined to think that the upcoming Ace will be more like the EVO 4G then the Incredible, but it won’t be the EVO 4G exactly.
Why are we saying this? Because we’re seeing postings about an apparent leak of a new flagship device from HTC and that device is condenamed Ace. The “leaked” specs are very similar to what the EVO 4G is sporting right now. That means the Ace will very likely be packing a 4.3in WVGA screen, a 1GHz processor of the Snapdragon kind and an 8MP camera with 720p video.
In addition, the leak revealed that the new HTC flagship device will carry 4GB on board memory and run on FroYo.
In terms of construction, the leak mention that the new device will be constructed from a single billet of Aluminium simillar to the one on the HTC Legend. Launch date is slated in October.
Unfortunately the source has already brought down the post but we have a feeling that there’s some truth in the specs. So, could the HTC Ace actually be a Desire 2?
We can’t confirm at this moment in time but we’ll keep a close watch on developments to give you the latest.
