HTC Hero Rework Leaked

HTC's version of the Hero for US CDMA carriers could involve a major redesign if a slip from Chinese site 080 bears fruit. The prototype is described as the Hero200, or the second version of the phone that switches to the network standard and recently passed FCC testing. It has HTC's familiar Android buttons but, in contrast to the original angled design, loses the characteristic "kink" common to HTC Android phones in favor of a flat metal front with gold-like trim.

Functionally, the phone should be the same as the reference Hero with a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, and HTC's custom Sense UI. It's assumed the phone will have both GPS and Wi-Fi on top of EVDO Revision A for 3G. Shipping dates are still an unknown, though a release before 2009 for Sprint is more likely.

    Ummm, don't you mean that the phone will be released by Sprint before 2010?
