HTC is preparing to launch a new device after Microsoft will officially release the Windows Phone 7 Mango update in couple of weeks from now. German website HTC Inside stumbled into details of upcoming Windows Phone 7 based handset with massive 4.7 inch LCD touchscreen. Packed with next generation processor and other hardware, we may get to see this Mango update loaded device later this year.
The HTC Eternity handset has a 4.7 inch WSVGA capacitive touchscreen display. Housing what appears to be an overclocked 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255 processor coupled with Adreno 205 graphics chip. Packing 16 GB on board storage, the Eternity handset has 512 MB RAM.
At the back, HTC has put an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and capable of recording 720p HD video. In the front is 1.3 megapixel camera that is deemed to bring two-way video calling for the Windows Phone devices. Other features include Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gravity Sensor, eCompass, Digital audio with SRS Surround Sound, FM Radio and 3.5 mm audio port.
The first Windows Phone 7 device was available in India for a hefty price (above Rs 32,000 approx.). At this moment, India has only selected handsets running Windows Phone 7 and most of them are from HTC. To be honest, Windows Phone 7 hasn’t officially launched in India and it seems that the Mango update might bring a simultaneous arrival in India.
When the Windows Phone officially launches in India, we certainly hope to see new Mango update loaded handsets at the launch. But apparently large screen handsets may not be doing really well in India considering the physical demographics. However, it’s too early to decide.
