HTC To Release Eternity & Omega Windows Phone At September 1st Event

HTC is set to unveil at least a pair of new handsets at an event that will take place on the 1st of September and will focus on Windows Phone Mango rather than its traditional option, Android.

According to BGR, the HTC Eternity and the Omega will be showcased next week; the first one is a 3.7-inch model that will be available on AT&T, although rumours earlier in July pointed to a handset with a 4.7-inch screen with a WVGA resolution.

The Eternity is also set to have a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 clocked at 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage (that's a microSD card), DLNA, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Windows Phone Mango 7.1, an eight megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front facing one plus a 1650mAh battery.

As for the Omega, BGR reckons that it will be a 4.5-inch Mango smartphone that will be sold by T-Mobile in the US. Previous titbits pointed to a 3.8-inch WVGA Super LCD, the same Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC as the Eternity with roughly the same hardware but oddly enough no microSD card.

Unsurprisingly, HTC has declined to provide more details about the handsets and we shall have to wait until next week to find out more.
