When Verzion’s roadmap leaked, we knew that we would be in for some new Android handsets, even a couple of tablets from the likes of Motorola and HTC. What we didn’t realise is that HTC were possibly going to be releasing a new Evo-like smartphone, a smartphone that the Boy Genius Report managed to get some secret shots of.

The smartphone is Evo-like in its construction, has a brushed aluminium finish and looks like it could be Verizon’s new flagship Android phone, especially when the source of the leak describes the device as making “the Droid 2 look like a kids toy.”

BGR think it the device will not be limited to the US, we tend to agree with them. HTC will not want to restrict sales to specific regions when the phone quite evidently sports an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, a kickstand, a 4.3-inch screen and a front facing camera.

For now we have to wait. We already know that Europe will possibly see the HTC Desire HD on the 15th September, we wonder how long it is until more information on this smartphone leaks.
