Consumers may be planning to sell mobile phones over the coming weeks in order to switch to the new HTC Edge, which has appeared in photographs for the first time.
Pocketnow.com has published images of the latest in a string of high-quality devices from the popular brand.
With a 4.7-inch touchscreen and a backlit eight-megapixel camera, there is no shortage of top-quality technology in place on the model.
The website speculated that those who snap up the mobile will soon have the chance to be among the first to enjoy possible HTC features such as the mooted HTC Listen music store.
Other tracks will be available through the Bluetooth-powered radio system, while the inclusion of Beats Audio is another plus for music lovers.
Research by Canalys earlier this month found that, for the third quarter of 2011, HTC rose to become the US's number one provider of mobile phones, overcoming the likes of Apple and Samsung.
