HTC launches new Windows Phones, confirms front-facing camera support

In London today, HTC announced two new Windows Phone handsets, the HTC Radar and the HTC TITAN. The Radar has a 1 GHz processor, 8 GB storage, and a 3.8″ LCD, and a 5 megapixel camera. The TITAN sports a monstrous 4.7″ screen (still using Windows Phone’s standard 480×800 resolution), 16 GB storage, an 8 megapixel camera, and a 1.5 GHz processor.

The design and the market positioning of the two handsets is quite different. The Radar is white and silver, with a body “crafted” from a single piece of metal. It’s a mid-range phone, with a mid-range price, and will retail for €399. The TITAN is a premium handset. 9.9 mm thick, unibody construction, and a €599 pricetag. The Radar also lacks the full range of sensors that Windows Phone supports; though it includes GPS, proximity and ambient light sensors, and an accelerometer, it doesn’t include a compass or a gyroscope. The TITAN has the complete set of sensors.
