New HTC Leo photos leaked

A Friday ai.rs rumor has the latest leaked photos of the upcoming HTC Leo handset, which are much different than what was previously believed to be the look of the device. Some of the previously leaked specs also seem to be confirmed by this latest report, including the 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen. The other specs, including a 5-megapixel camera with dual LEDs, 512MB of built-in memory, 320MB of RAM and a microSD slot, are also seemingly confirmed.

Despite the unofficial spec sheet listing Windows Mobile 6.5 as the operating system, the existence of the capacitive touchscreen seems to contradict this, as the OS does not support such a feature. It is therefore expected the handset will ship with Windows Mobile 7. The overall look of the Leo recalls the Android-based Hero but without that smartphone's signature "kink" and with Windows Mobile-specific keys.

While the latest report has the device launching in October, pricing is still unknown.
