A couple of weeks ago we talked about the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 about how they might lose their home buttons in the quest for smoothness. It seems that Apple isn’t the only brand chasing the button less Smartphone; if these images are accurate it would appear that the HTC Desire 2 will also lose front facing buttons.
An image on Pocketnow shows a HTC handset that they say is the HTC Desire 2, it features a front facing camera with curvy edges as well as a new look ear piece. A second image shows HTC and Verizon branding so if it is a hoax at least it’s a convincing one. The image appears to show that the device will have a 3.8 inch screen size, that’s almost Samsung Galaxy Ace territory.
It is rumoured that this Nexus One lookalike will be unveiled at the Mobile World congress event due to take place in February. If this is true then we might see this and a host of great new handsets at the same event. If only Apple would attend – Now that would be a treat.
One thing that is certain is that HTC loves the Desire line as much as their customers do as it is rumoured that Desire 2 will be the official name. For further details we will have to wait for an official unveiling.
