HTC 2007 Smartphones

Cellphone designer HTC plans a mixture of new smartphones and updates to existing models in the coming year, according to Russian site HPC. In addition to the Athena, HTC is known to be working on two new phones that bring some of the company's technology to the mainstream: the Elf (pictured) will go without 3G wireless Internet or Wi-Fi but should still support Bluetooth and will have a 2.8-inch touchscreen in place of a number pad; the Panda, whose visuals have yet to be revealed, will also go without 3G wireless but will have a large 3.5-inch screen and Wi-Fi.

Changes will also be made to the phones that have been released or are just about to ship, HPC says. The still unreleased Vox and T-Mobile's Dash will see faster processors as well as support for HSDPA wireless and GPS. A variant of the Hermes, named the Kaiser, should also see a GPS upgrade. Release dates have not been leaked at the same time as the phone details, however. Click through for a complete photo of the Elf.
