HTC HD7/HD3 Pictures Appear On The Web

Finally some real pictures of the HD7 & HD3 have been leaked online with more details emerging; both are Windows Phone 7 smartphones which are scheduled to be launched within the next few weeks.

Yesterday, we reported about schematics of the HTC HD7 that were published and this time around, it's actually proper pictures that have been published online. reports that the smartphone comes with a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, a 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon SoC, a 5-megapixel camera with two LED flashes (not unlike the HTC Desire), HD video recording capabilities and 8GB storage.

Another website from China, published pictures of the HD3 and it even comes with a kick stand which reminds us of the Sony Ericsson W995. The pictures however have been removed from the website possibly on request from HTC.

A few comments though; we're not sure whether the schematics and the pictures of the HD7 are for the same version since there's at least one difference, a microSD expansion slot. Then there's the odd choice of the QSD8250 when the QSD8255 has already been launched.

At least one phone from HTC, the HTC Desire HD, uses the QSD8255 which is an improved version and we find it very odd that the phone only comes with 8GB onboard; together with the low megapixel count for the camera, this leads us to believe that the HD7 will not be the flagship Windows Phone 7 from HTC.
