The HTC Legend seems to have gained a taste for the camera; after being spotted in the wild yesterday, we’ve now had another leaked photo of the Android smartphone drop into our inbox. From this side-on view, the slab-sided thickness of the Legend is on show; it looks a little chunkier than the HTC Hero.
As for performance, the optical mouse apparently works well and the AMOLED display is particularly impressive, but otherwise it’s pretty similar to the Hero. Incidentally, a March 2010 release date for Android 2.1 for the Hero was mentioned.
Our tipster also reconfirmed the specifications we’ve heard before, with the Legend having a 3.2-inch capacitive HVGA AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, microSD card slot and GPS/AGPS. There’s also a 1300mAh battery, quad-band GSM and dual-band UMTS/HSDPA, digital compass, G-Sensor, 3.5mm Audio jacket, microUSB port and a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor. That keeps the Legend running along swifter than the Hero it’s presumed to replace, we’re told, especially when it comes to video and graphics.[Thanks Dion!]
