The Pocketnow team has obtained a picture of a new HTC handset which is expected to carry the name of Ruby. We can tell from the image that this phone will be offered by T-Mobile when it ultimately arrives. HTC recently indicated that they would be releasing an additional 6-8 phones over the remainder of 2011 so this is expected to be one of those.
A leaked T-Mobile roadmap from back in May indicated that there were two HTC devices listed with undetermined launch dates – HTC Bresson and HTC G-Infinity. It’s possible that the Ruby is one of these two and that one codename has replaced another.
T-Mobile and HTC have been pretty consistent in the way they present their collaborations, often replacing the search button with a Genius button. This handset does not look to follow in that tradition, however we still dig the design.
