The HTC Titan (formerly Eternity) is an informal successor to the HD7. It packs a 4.7" S-LCD classy screen with WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution. That's the biggest classy screen HTC have put on a phone yet and the Titan is the fastest WP7 phone (for now) with a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) CPU.

It's a unibody design and it's only 9.9mm thick making it one of the thinnest Windows Phone 7 devices yet (title is shared with Samsung Focus). The phone has some heft to it though, at 160g.

The second half of the duo is the HTC Radar (used to go by Omega). It's here to hold over for the Mozart and the Trophy.

The HTC Radar will be available in Metal Grey and Active White

The Radar has a 3.8" S-LCD classy screen with WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution and goes back to the WP7 standard 1Giga Hertz (GHz) processor. It has a unibody design too, but it's slightly thicker than the Titan, measuring 10.9mm.
