An HTC announcement for HTC UK was sent out with a mystery device covered in flames and smokes, asking press to “Come and see what HTC has dreamt up” on September 15th in London. According to Engadget, which has lightened the image, a handset was partially revealed and the backside looks similar to the unibody Desire HD.
The handset was previously speculated to debut in October–a mid-September announcement would fit the timeline and the handset may launch a few short weeks later.
The Desire HD represents the best of the HTC Legend and the HTC Desire. The handset will carry forth the larger 4.3-inch touchscreen from the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint, along with the unibody aluminum design of the HTC Legend and the specs of the HTC Desire, representing what many believe to be the GSM edition of the EVO 4G, a dual-mode 3G/4G WiMax handset for Sprint.
