Leaked photo of HTC Omega, the first WP7 'Mango' device [updated]

Could this be the HTC Omega (also known as Radar), rumored to be the first Windows Phone 7 "Mango" running smartphone?

Windows Phone 7 "Mango"-running smartphones are finally ready for consumers, with HTC expected to unveil two in a press event on September 1 in London -- one of which could be the HTC Omega whose leaked photo was first posted on PocketNow.

According to PocketNow, the Omega will sport a single core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC processor, have 512 MB RAM, a front-facing camera as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera. The white and silver Omega will either have 3.8-inch SLCD per PocketNow, or a massive 4.5-inch display like the Samsung Infuse 4G as my colleague James Kendrick believes. ThisIsMyNext is also suggesting that Omega is just a codename for Radar, just to add to the mystery and confusion on this little known, WP7 device.

No matter the size of the touchscreen or its moniker, the Omega/Radar and the rumored HTC Eternity will be phones to watch as more WP7 "Mango" devices surface this fall. I hope HTC will be bringing these handsets stateside so we can see how WP7 stacks up against Android, iOS and BlackBerry OS.

Updated: Corrected RAM from 512 GB to MB and added "Mango" to headline.
