HTC is set to unveil its first batch of Windows Phone Mango devices on September 1 alongside the Android-sporting HTC Kingdom. We’ve previously seen images of the HTC Eternity but the second phone, the HTC Omega, was just a name tied to a list of features until now.

PocketNow has got hold of a very convincing looking render of the HTC Omega, showing the Mango device sporting HTC’s familiar two-tone design in grey and white. While the render doesn’t confirm or deny any of the previously rumoured specs, it does show a front-facing camera that wasn’t mentioned before but stacks up with Microsoft’s confirmation earlier this week that Mango will bring new Skype integration.

Click the headline to take a closer look at the HTC Omega render. We reckon it looks like a cross between the HTC Incredible S and the HTC Flyer.

HTC is hitting London next week to show off future devices and Windows Phone will be top of the agenda, according to BGR. It claims to have heard from a little birdie within HTC headquarters that two Windows Phone Mango devices will make their debut on September 1.

Sadly there’s not a lot of new details to feast on. The source simply says the HTC Eternity (which was leaked last month) will have a 3.7in screen while the HTC Omega (which also popped up in July) will sport a 4.5in display.

Given that extensive specs for both devices have been leaked (hit the links above for our previous coverage), it certainly makes sense for them to appear next week. Rest assured we’ll be there to get our hands on whatever future HTC phones the firm feels like revealing.

Since Windows Phone Mango was released to phone makers back in July, it was almost inevitable that it would leak. And now it has. The final version of Windows Phone Mango has made its way onto the web and if you’ve got the time and patience, you can install it on you very own Windows Phone device.

The ever resourceful folk over at the xda-developers forum have put together extensive instructions on how to install the Windows Phone Mango leak with download links.

The OS build (7720) requires a phone running either the post-NoDo update or one of the previous Windows Phone Mango beta releases. The Windows Phone Mango leak has been confirmed to work on the HTC HD7, HTC Mozart, Dell Venue Pro and LG Optimus 7 among others but remember if you choose to grab it, you do so at your own risk.
