Leaked images of the HTC A16 appeared on the web as revealed by tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks).

Based on the handset's front and back sides that were exposed in the photos, it is highly likely that the A16 will belong to the Desire lineup of HTC. However, it may be difficult to know just yet if the A16 will actually be a re-branding of Desire or if it will simply carry the full model name of HTC Desire A16 when it officially launches.

The images depict the handset as a colorful device with some even showing the back cover as having eye-catching design features. On the front side, it shows a small camera and some dual BoomSound speakers which are reminiscent of the Sony Walkman logo.

There is also a camera on the rear which seemed a bit large although this could mean that it will have a higher resolution. The leaked photos also show the presence of a single-LED flash on the rear which appeared a little like it's protruding.

One thing that may attract some attention is the pair of odd holes placed within a circular module on the rear side of the handset. There could be a number of reasons why it was there in the first place. Perhaps it is meant for a case, an accessory or a port for charging.

Specs of the HTC A16 are still unknown at the moment. If it does end up as one of the handsets in the Desire series, the A16 may carry mid-range specs and may feature either a MediaTek SoC or a Snapdragon.

There is also a speculation that the A16 will come with HTC's Sense and that it will have a polycarbonate plastic build.

A Taiwanese website (translated) known as 3C Talk suggests that the A16 may have a $150 price tag which further stresses the handset's mid-range appeal.

The HTC A16 may also look appealing to consumers who want to see more colors in their handsets. Its color theme could just be the most creative-looking theme yet that has ever been seen on the Desire series.

HTC is yet to officially announce the A16. Since the company will not be unveiling the One M10 flagship at this year's MWC, it may still appear at the event with some other announcements. Perhaps one of these would be the leaked A16.
