HTC Debuts Radar and Titan Windows Phone Mango Handsets

Londoners have been invited to an HTC event that’s currently underway, where the company promised to show them “what’s next”. A rumor said that this shindig would be a platform for the company to highlight some of its new Windows Phone handsets, rather than anything Android. Sure enough, Mango is the word, and so far HTC has debuted the Radar and Titan Windows Phone smartphones.

We had heard that the Radar (pictured above) might just be the HTC Omega that’s been in our sights for a while now, and so it is. The less-powerful of the two models, the Radar was expected to feature a 1.4 or 1.5GHz processor, but it seems that HTC will be sticking with a 1GHz chip. With a 3.8-inch screen, 512MB of RAM and 8GB storage, it’s positively Trophy-esque. It differs mainly in its camera setup, including an f/2.2 lens for low-light-level performance, and the front-facing camera we had heard about earlier.

The Titan (below), on the other hand, could be a Windows Phone powerhouse. This is what we knew as the Eternity, with a giant 4.7-inch screen. Here, the rumored specs check out better, with a 1.5GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB storage. The Titan’s a hair under a centimeter thick, so it manages to stay thin despite the large display. Its camera will have the same low-light performance as the Radar, but with an eight-megapixel sensor versus the Radar’s five. Both models will, of course, arrive running Mango. Price and availability have yet to be revealed.
