Early “HTC Proto” test shots leaked


HTC is just about due to churn out another round of devices for the holiday season, and The Verge has outed a device which may lead the charge. It’s being called the “HTC Proto,” and it looks like HTC will position this thing to dominate the mid-range segment of its lineup.

It’ll come to town with a 4 inch display, a 5 megapixel camera, a 1GHz dual-core processor, and the shots show that it may come with Beats audio. Recent rumors suggest HTC may be moving away from their Beats efforts soon, and if that’s true then this being an early press shot would explain the logo’s presence.

But all that aside, it looks like it will be a decent device that should hit the market at an affordable price point. Have a quick look above.

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. That looks gross. I hope it’s fake. They should make the photo that Chris attached to the Facebook article a reality, without the mandatory Facebook, of course.

  2. Finally!!!! a 4.0 inch screen phone with a dual core. Yesss

    1. are you derp? Rezound, One and others had that. Oh wait, you meant to respond to an iphone5 rumor thread.

    2. HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE = 4″ phone with dual core processor.
      HTC Rezound = 4G LTE phone with 4.3″ 720 HD screen & dual core processor.

      Both are currently available on Verizon’s network.

      1. Yep before those there was the LG Optimus 2X. This person is just trolling.

  3. they already said Beats wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon, didn’t they?

    You guys should really talk to each other. Or, at the very least, read each other’s articles.

  5. I’m calling this one for either verizon or t-mobile.

    1. who cares.. the phone is fail.

  6. Quentyn, look again. it’s there on the bottom of the battery cover. And HTC has outright stated that rumor was false. The quality of your articles is dropping lower and lower each day.

  7. It is desire v. Available now!

  8. Simply hideous

  9. They said they were going to focus on fewer phones right?? I see no slowdown…

  10. Looks exactly like the Desire S from the front!

  11. looks like any other HTC phone. I have a Rez and a Tbolt. My friends have had other HTC phones. I’m getting tired of the stale look. The only thing different is the exaggerated embellishment around the camera, which will be covered up by a case because HTC only uses cheap plastic for phone baking. Sorry Horribly Tired Company (HTC), we’re done.
