HTC's 2011 Android flagship spied in Taipei

HTC 2011 Android leader seen on Taiwan metro

HTC's mystery 2011 flagship phone was spotted today at a Taipei transit stop and confirmed the carrier's launch plans. The full-touchscreen phone has the distinctive chrome-trimmed front camera and curved speaker along with HTC's own Sense UI overlay. The Engadget sighting couldn't confirm for certain if it might use Android 2.3, but a prototype serial number made clear the phone wasn't yet production hardware.

Very little is known about what's inside the device. The front camera suggests at least 14.4Mbps HSPA akin to the Desire HD, but the phone looks to be smaller overall than its 4.3-inch sibling with a 3.8- or four-inch screen. HTC is very likely to depend on at least a second-generation, single-core Snapdragon and could theoretically use the dual-core 1.2GHs chip due this year if battery life isn't an issue.

HTC is near certain to be launching the unnamed phone along with several others at Mobile World Congress in mid-February. Most of its phones reach North America in some fashion but can face delays or redesigns on the way.
