Although the phone’s thought to be called the HTC Touch HD, a shot of the talker’s “Device Information” screen shows that it actually provides a 480 x 800 resolution – hardly full HD. It's also capable of displaying 65,000-odd colours.

The same picture also confirms that the phone has a Qualcomm 7201A CPU running at 528MHz, and Bluetooth 2.0 for short-range data transfers.

Windows Mobile and Qualcomm make an appearance

A shot showing the Windows “Start” menu confirms that the handset runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, which means the phone’s almost certainly a touchscreen/stylus hybrid like Samsung’s new Omnia and Palm's Treo Pro. Pictures also show a 3G icon.

The source of the pictures has claimed to know that the phone also sports a five-megapixel camera, in addition to a Micro SD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack.

A release date or price hasn’t been unearthed for the HTC Touch HD yet.
