HTC Leo gets touchscreen

Following up earlier rumors of an HTC handset, the Leo, the latest leak shows the device's specs and reveals that what was actually known as Firestone will become the Leo, as the specs reveal no QWERTY keyboard. Instead, the Leo will apparently have a fast 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 480x800 resolution and 320MB of RAM, according to one source. Otherwise, the dual-band HSDPA handset will have quad-band GSM/EDGE network support and should run Windows Mobile 6.5.

Other features are equally rich and include Wi-Fi, a digital compass, assisted GPS functionality, an accelerometer and both light and proximity sensors. A 5-megapixel camera will come with a dual LED flash and video capture support, with storage coming from both 512MB of internal memory and a microSDHC memory card slot. There will also be a 3.5mm headset jack, while power is said to come from a 1,239mAh battery.

The Leo is rumored to be launching soon, potentially as early as the summer. Windows Mobile 6.5 is expected to ship on finished devices in or near September. [via WMPowerUser]
