TAIWANESE SMARTPHONE VENDOR HTC has leaked an unnamed smartphone ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

The upcoming handset is running Google's Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich along with HTC's Sense 4.0. A set of images has been posted by Phone Arena.

Although there's no name for the device it looks like a follow-up to the Incredible S, going by the shrink-wrapped back. It has a classic HTC look to the front, similar to that of the Sensation family.

From the images we can see a fair amount of the hardware specifications. It seems that this won't be one of the Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 powered smartphones to tip up at MWC, instead it will have a 1.2GHz dual-core chip.

Internal storage is unknown but it will have 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and LTE connectivity. It apparently will have an AMOLED screen - we guess the size at around 4in.

HTC will be announcing new products at MWC so we'll have to wait and see if this is one of them. Earlier today we reported that a number of HTC smartphones will be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS, starting by the end of March. µ
