Pictures Of HTC Radar Windows Phone Smarpthone Emerge

The Windows Phone version of the HTC Incredible S - the HTC Radar - has appeared online courtesy of an Algerian online auction website called OuedKniss.

The phone, which is also known as the HTC Omega, comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, an eight-megapixel rear camera plus a front facing one and is likely to be made of aluminium.

The HTC Radar which was listed on the OuedKniss website has a double chin and a white colour scheme which reminds us more of the first HTC Android Phones like the Magic, rather than curernt HTC Windows Phone smartphones like the Trophy.

The phone - which should cost around £300 - is set to be launched on the 1st of September when HTC will be holding an event in London to showcase the new handset alongside another Windows Phone called Eternity; both of them will come with Windows Phone 7.5 and will likely have Skype onboard.

While the phone has a significant boost when it comes to CPU speed, it would be disappointing if HTC stuck to 512MB RAM or 8GB for onboard storage. Purelygadgets is selling the SIM-free version of the Trophy which has a five-megapixel camera and a 1GHz SoC for £255.
