One of the very first Windows Phone 7.5 Mango devices from HTC, called the Radar, has just passed through the FCC. This is always a good sign that the device is gearing up for launch but when exactly that will be is still uncertain. The handset was first officially unveiled at the beginning of this month during IFA 2011.
The device will be heading to T-Mobile as the HTC Radar 4G with support for the carrier’s HSPA+ network. The FCC filings have it listed under model number PI06110, packing support for GSM/EDGE/WCDMA bands as well as the 1700MHz band used by T-Mobile. The device sports a 3.8-inch WVGA display, 1GHz processor, and 8GB internal storage. It also offers a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with a single LED flash and f/2.2 aperture as well as a VGA resolution front-facing camera for video calls.
Although a release date hasn’t been announced yet, Microsoft has already confirmed that the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update will be rolled out to existing Windows Phone handsets within the next two weeks. It’s possible that some of the very first Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handsets will be launched around the same time. For more details on the HTC Radar, make sure to check out our hands-on video.
