Niche blog WMPoweruser has heard word that the handset – named the HTC Leo – will feature a clamshell design with a WVGA main screen and an additional, QVGA screen on the outside.
Other whisperings about specs include talk of support for Open GL 2.0 graphics, which means Leo could well boast the new Snapdragon processor most recently nestled inside the Toshiba TG01.
We haven't seen a clamshell design from HTC since the Universal around four years ago, practically eons in gadget years. Could Leo in fact be the long-rumoured HTC Omni?
