The HTC Accord with a centred USB connector
What appear to be schematics for the HTC Accord Windows Phone have been leaked on Twitter by Football (@Football4PDA). As with any rumour, we recommend you take this with a pinch of salt, but we're starting to seriously look at the design and see increased probability that this could well be what HTC will be bringing to the table this year.
We last looked at the HTC Accord being leaked by Football, but were unsure just how accurate the renders were. Should the above diagram be real, we could well be looking at a colourful HTC Windows Phone. The issues we had with the previous renders were the Windows Phone 7.x interface and the interesting use of purple. While the above image could easily have been created from those renders, we couldn't pass up the opportunity for another look (and this new 'leak' is making its way around news websites).
Previous renders of the HTC Accord leaked yesterday
Unfortunately no specifications were included in the schematics, apart from the front-facing camera and presence of a notification LED, but we did notice (almost immediately) the centred USB connector, which we believe to be a new hardware positional requirement in Windows Phone. This gives the claimed HTC Accord images some weight by following suit.
Known specifications of the HTC Accord (prior to the leaked images) include:
- Dual Core Snapdragon (MSM8260A)
- 4.3 Super LCD2 720p
- HSPA+ 42Mbps
- 8MP Camera 1080p HD video capable
- 1GB Memory
