It certainly looks nice judging by these leaked images of build number 10149, which will not actually be the final offering from Redmond.

The Taiwanese company is now reeling without a successful flag waving handset in most markets, but HTC has said it will launch another top line smartphone later in the year and judging by early rumors it is going to re-introduce us to the HTC we know and love.
