More Pictures Of Motorola Olympus Emerge

High resolution pictures of what looks like Motorola's next top of the range handset, the Olympus, have been sent to a tech website after the handset was apparently purchased in a flea market somewhere in the US.

Gizmodo published pictures of the device, internally known as the MB860, in all its glory and the phone looks a lot like any large size HTC phone on the market (like the HTC Desire HD).

The tipster told Gizmodo that he was able to access a developers' menu with a lot of features by holding volume down and power.

Based on the photos, one can see that it comes with a HDMI port, a front facing camera, a rear one with flash and a microUSB port. It is likely that the phone has a 4-inch or 4.3-inch screen and therefore likely to have a WVGA resolution.

Other recent leaks over the device point to the presence of an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core chip with Android OS 2.2 which will probably be replaced by Gingerbread at launch.
