The HTC Zara has been the star of several recent leaks and rumors, and today we can add another leak to that list. This one comes from @evleaks. though interestingly enough, he chose to troll one of HTC’s execs by watermarking the picture with the the Twitter handle of Jeff Gordon, the senior global online communications manager at HTC. Anyway, we did get a clear look at the front and back of the HTC Zara.
Judging by the size and look of the Zara, it appears to be a mid-range phone, possibly for HTC’s Desire line-up. The specs suggest that, as well; the phone features a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8930 processor, 1GB RAM, 4.5-inch qHD display, 8MP camera, 2100mAh battery, 8GB storage, microSD card slot and Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5. On the whole, the device doesn’t seem to fit into the One line.
But what is interesting is the software. It’s launching with Android 4.3, which is mighty quick to launch with, as well as running Sense 5.5. Judging by small numerical change in the name, we’re going to hazard a guess and say that Sense 5.5 is just a minor update over Sense 5. Either way, it’s nice to see HTC getting up-to-speed in terms of keeping software up to date. The tweet also mentioned that the Zara would be arriving in Q4, so we may have to wait a couple months.
What do you think of the Zara?
