An HTC phone allegedly codenamed "Omega" has appeared on PocketNow this afternoon in some convincingly realistic press shots. It's running Windows Phone -- which is convenient considering that Microsoft's Mango release is coming right up -- and is said to feature a 3.8-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, 512MB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 processor. Qualcomm's official specs for the MSM8255 only have it scaling up to 1.4GHz -- so either HTC's pushing the envelope on the clock speed, it's actually something lower like 1.4GHz, or the phone features a dual-core MSM8260 which does allow for 1.5GHz out of the box (the latter seems unlikely considering the middling display and RAM specs).

HTC has events planned for September 1st (we'll be there), and it seems like the Omega is probably a lock to get announced there -- possibly as the "Radar," PocketNow reports. With any luck, we should be looking at a couple months' worth of interesting Windows Phone hardware coming up.
