HTC leaks pics of their next big Android phone, likely headed to Verizon 4G

Someone from HTC began leaking close-up pictures of their next Android phone to several blogs today. New images appeared on Gizmodo, Engadget, Slashgear, and Android Central. None of the photos reveal the entire phone, but when you piece them together it’s pretty clear this is the same phone we have been calling the HTC Mecha or Incredible HD, which first appeared on BGR way back in August.

The HTC Mecha was Verizon’s version of the Desire HD and it was originally scheduled to launch this past October. Now rumors suggest that it was delayed till 2011 so that HTC could upgrade the radio to support Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Verizon already confirmed they will have LTE devices at the upcoming CES and HTC CEO Peter Chou also said his company was working on LTE devices, so the chances of seeing this phone in the next couple of weeks are high.

Look for this phone on Verizon in early 2011.
