HTC Mogul, Touch sequels to boast VGA LCDs at Sprint

HTC Diamond and Raphael

HTC is developing two new phones that will replace some of Sprint's most popular smartphone models, according to a spec sheet leak handed to Engadget. The Raphael (shown) appears to be device spotted in a phone collection and will replace the Mogul QWERTY keyboard slider with a sleeker black design, a 3-megapixel camera, and Wi-Fi. Preloaded Windows Mobile 6.1 will also let HTC ship a 640x480 resolution display four times sharper than allowed on Windows Mobile today.

A related phone, the Diamond, will replace the HTC Touch at the American carrier and offer virtually all of the features of the Raphael save for the physical keyboard.

Both are also expected to introduce an updated version of HTC's custom TouchFLO interface for contacts and media but aren't yet known to include support for Sprint's faster EVDO Revision A network. If accurate, the tip places the launch of the Raphael first in September, while the Diamond appears last in November. Verizon is likely to carry one or both at a later date, while GSM versions may launch ahead of Sprint for Europe and other HTC-friendly areas.
