What’s HTC Unveiling on September 15th in London?


Members of the press have been invited to “see what HTC has dreamt up” this September 15th in the great city of London, England. We figured it wouldn’t be too long before at least one of these devices received some official unveiling love after all of the leaks we’ve seen from their camp as of late.


So what could the device be? The event’s in Europe, so naturally we assume it won’t be anything we expect to land over on our side of the world (if we’re going by name alone). That leaves one huge possibility in the HTC Desire HD and a slim possibility in the still-kicking HTC Vision. These are the same phones rumored to be America’s counterparts in T-Mobile’s “Project Emerald” in the form of the MyTouch 3G HD and the T-Mobile G1 Blaze, respectively.

Other than that, what else could it be? The only American alternative we can think of would be that QWERTY-enabled 4-inch device headed for Verizon – the fact that it’s a world phone could explain an announcement in that part of the world. That is still unlikely at this point, however, as we don’t expect that phone to makes its way to the surface until early 2011.

We’re waiting, HTC.

[Update] Completely forgot about the possibility of this being a Windows Phone 7 device. That would be a bummer for us Android fans, no?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Could this not be a WP7

  2. AS long its for Europe. HTC seems to be the only Android device maker that launches stuff in Europe first….

  3. WP7 is not a bummer for Android as it will hopefully offer some competition and force even more improvements in Android. You can’t have every device launch as an Android launch and it would be boring if it were.

    Have HTC not generally had more success in Europe? Isn’t that partly because we buy more SIM free phones and that’s how HTC sold their own branded phones for years. I wouldn’t be too surprised to still see a good number of worldwide HTC devices launch in Europe for that very reason. Time will tell.

    Anyway, in most instances, speculating on news is like speculating on stocks – rarely fruitful and often heartbreaking. Though my wallet doesn’t seem so affected.

  4. Please let it be the Desire HD!..

  5. They should have chosen a much different image. The one they did pick reminds me of a building on fire and is really quite distressing and saddening.

  6. I didn’t mean it’d be a bummer to see the unveiling of a new WinMo device, I meant it’d be a bummer for us to get all excited for this particular event only to find out it’s not Android-related.

  7. It’s obviously a mobile phone with an integrated smoke machine.

  8. @Quentyn: While I think the MyTouch 3G HD and the G1 Blaze appreciate your respect, it’s probably more likely you mean “respectively”, no?

  9. Isn’t the Project Emerald’s phone the “Glacier”?
    The Desire HD’s a totally different phone.

  10. max, man up

  11. @Pyrazol haha! That I did. That’s what happens when you write at 4am.

  12. Seeing as they used a fire in the art, could it be the Blaze?

  13. http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b318/djdjdog/review.jpg

    taken from engadget comments. Its the Desire HD.

  14. it is all moot, android is dead, oracle has sued and will shut down Android.

  15. why would they announce a wp7 phone in september?

  16. @Ben, I think you’re being overdramatic with Oracle. They only want what everybody seems to ever want….more money.

  17. ben is the “android is dying” troll.

  18. agreed… Ben go DIAF.

  19. “What HTC dreamt up” = HTC Vision

    get it, dream – vision

    just my guess

  20. If you look into the ‘smoke’ in the invite, there appears to be a detail of a camera housing not unlike that on the leaked photos of the Desire HD…

  21. @ Ben, you my friend are the definition of fool. look at androids quarterly figures.

  22. This has to be a European phone only because the event is over there and it was rumor that this phone was going to be their version of the EVO. Also this is a downgrade compared to the EVO and since when does HTC bring out downgraded phones to the U.S. when we have the EVO with front camera and HDMI port? Now this is an upgrade for Europeans because this better than any current HTC phone they can buy.

  23. I bet it’s HTC ACE/Desire HD, which is the European HTC Evo 4g.

  24. Think hard guys…

    It’s for the HTC G1 Blaze.

  25. htc = taiwan phone maker! NO THANKS,I DON’T TRUST TAIWAN PRODUCTS!

  26. I am sure it would be the much anticipated HTC Desire HD!!..
