A video showing what is allegedly the HTC Desire HD have surfaced on 247 Android and there is good news and bad news. The phone seems to be a Europe-bound variant of the HTC EVO 4G, with a 4.3" display, 8MP camera with dual LED flash and 720p recording, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and Android 2.2.
The phone also seems to sport the 3.5mm headset jack at the bottom of the phone and some rubberized backing on certain sections of the case. AndroidandMe adds that the phone has "face tracking technology, and support for the Xvid codec."
The phone at this point really doesn't seem to introduce any new technology, instead being Europe's GSM variant for the crows of consumers waiting to get their hands on an EVO.
An earlier leak of the device indicates that the HTC Desire HD will launch in Europe around October and will be very similar to the EVO 4G in many respects. Unfortunately, the rumors of the device's specs are missing some key features for many. The device appears to lack a kick-stand, HDMI output, front facing camera, trackpad/trackball, and will not have a unibody design.
However, a comment on Phandroid's coverage of the story points out that in the beginning of the video, there is a small white reminder light flashing on the left side of the top speaker port, and since there is a black dot at the right side of the same speaker port, a front facing camera may be a feature.
