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.
Update: Picture looks to have come from @Xmoo on Twitter; thanks @ardoudwokke for the heads-up
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.
