What you see below is apparently a screenshot depicting HTC Sense doing its thing on a yet-unannounced, yet-unreleased HTC G2.
We first told you about the low-end G2 at the beginning of this month, and it should complement the upcoming One and the device codenamed M4 pretty well in the Taiwanese company’s portfolio. Specs for the G2 include a 1 GHz single-core processor, a 3.5-inch 320×480 touchscreen, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, a 5 MP rear camera, and a 1,400 mAh battery.
This could be HTC Sense 5, often rumored to be the next version of the famous UI overlay. But that will obviously run atop some version of Android Jelly Bean, won’t it? Probably 4.2 even. And yet, the G2 is rumored to launch running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
So maybe a pared down version of Sense 5 will make it to ICS-running smartphones as well. Or maybe what you see above isn’t Sense 5, but some other HTC-esque designation for its new low-end UI overlay. We’ll have to wait and see. One thing to note, though, is that this image has the right dimensions: it’s 320×480, just like the G2′s screen should be.
Finally, if it wasn’t made painfully obvious already, please take into account that ‘G2′ is just a codename, and this smartphone will be announced bearing another name. That can either happen on February 19, or during MWC, or at some other time.
