Those who are looking for a super high-end smartphone have been keeping their eye on the HTC Leo. It has yet to be announced, but rumors about this Windows phone with a 4.3-inch screen and 1 GHz processor have been circulating for months. The latest of these includes a number of new “real world” images.
These images also include one of the “Hardware Information” screen, helping to confirm many of the rumored specifications.
This Windows phone will have a 4.3-inch, WVGA (800 by 480 pixel) touchscreen. That would make it significantly larger than the 3.6 inch, WVGA display on the HTC Touch HD.
In addition, the Leo will supposedly use a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 320 MB of RAM.
One of the screen shots clearly shows it running Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro, which is set to be released next month.

More Rumored Specifications
According to a specification list that leaked out last month, the HTC Leo will be a GSM phone with the HSDPA version of mobile broadband. Other wireless capabilities will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and a GPS receiver.
An 8 MPx camera with auto-focus, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5 mm headset jack will supposedly round out the feature list.
It is not known when or where the HTC Leo will hit the market. None of the rumors so far have mentioned a wireless carrier at all.
Pricing is equally unknown, but given its specifications, this will clearly won’t be an entry-level model.
