HTC Omega To Be Windows Phone Mango’s Launch Device?

The folks over at PocketNow have managed to grab a hold of some pretty official looking press shots of an upcoming HTC Windows Phone device code named “Omega”.  The phone’s pegged as a Windows Phone Mango (or 7.5, if numerals are what you’re after) and has quite a nice spec sheet.  First off is a Qualcomm processor rumoured to run at the 1.5GHz mark.  Now this is a little odd as the chipset in question, the Snapdragon MSM8255 can only be clocked to 1.4GHz, but can run at 1.5GHz out of the box if it’s dual core.  The specs also list 512MB of RAM, a 3.8″ display and an 8MP snapper.

The design itself seems reminiscent of the HTC Flyer with the same plastic finish and form round the back, with what seems to be an aluminium rim around the screen that splits the lower bezel in two creating a kind of double chin.  Seems rather nice, even in white, but doesn’t seem to scream high end.  HTC have an event planned for the 1st of September that also falls in with Windows Phone Mango’s Q3 release.  It’s only 5 days away, but the next couple of months are going to be interesting to say the least.
